The original turtle shell pattern is based on a regular hexagon. This is derived from the shape of a turtle’s shell, which is a symbol of longevity and good omen.
Nowadays, it is also said to be a pattern that brings good luck in money, making this Wagasa an auspicious pattern in every sense.
This technique has a long tradition among the various dyeing techniques used in Japan, and is a concentration of rich pattern expression and the delicate hand skills unique to the Japanese. After applying glue to the areas that will not be dyed, colors are applied using different katazome patterns for each color. At the final step, when the glue rises out of the washi in the water, the design finally becomes clear.
