"Souka-Monyo (Wild Vegetal Pattern)"
With their unique meandering growth, flowering plants create their own world. Vegetal patterns have been appreciated by many peoples since time immemorial. As humans, flowering plants and trees live alongside us. Looking at vegetal patterns pleased people And I find the sight of them reassuring.

(Katsuji Wakisaka, the textile designer)

The concept for June is "Wild Vegetal Pattern"
The textile expresses how plants and flowers create their own world through their growth. We created wagashi using green peas, which are in season now. And the plants in the textile pattern are reminiscent of green pea vines.

We used white anko on the outer shell and shaped it into a green pea pod and on top of that we have placed rounded anko made of green pea and coated in kanten jelly. Green pea anko consists of pureed boiled green pea with sugar and you can pick up the strong aromatic notes of the green pea.

We collaborated with famous Kyoto patisserie Choukyudou.
Our pop vibrant textile design reflect changes in the seasons and these are also expressed in our wagashi.

SOU・SOU's textile designer Katsuji Wakisaka has been publishing new textile design on monthly magazine, "PHP Special". The seasonal changes are expressed in our wagashi.

We collaborated with The noted Kyoto patisserie Kameya Yoshinaga.
Together we created wagashi that emphasize Japanese seasonal changes as well as our graphic textile prints.

SOU・SOU designed a new flower design corresponding to each month of the year in "Flower Notes For the Four Seasons', the booklet published by Nihon Kadou Sha, operated by Ikenobo*.

Ikenobo is the original school that produced ikebana (traditional Japanese Buddhist floral design) as a unique artform in Japan
over five centuries ago and continue to spread awareness and knowledge of the ikebana tradition worldwide.
