"moonlit night"
We tend to think that it is pitch black at nighttime, but moonlight is much brighter than one would expect.Especially in autumn the full moon is bright and glimmering.Looking out from a shore, Moonlight plays off the surface of the waves as they advance and recede while clouds rush about the night sky.
In such a theatrical display moonlight presents itself.
(Katsuji Wakisaka, the textile designer)

お月見は日本古来の習慣で、月が見える場所にススキを飾り、団子・里芋・御酒 を供えて観月を楽しみます。月見団子に見立てて積み重ねた4つお団子には、それぞれ違う味の餡が入ってい ます。
The textile design for September is called "moonlit night".
Ceremonial moon viewing is an ancient Japanese custom and involves arranging a place from which one can view the moon while enjoying traditional delicacies of dango mochi, taro potatoes, and sake. We have made four dango mochi that are resemble traditional moon-viewing dango and are flavored with a distinct anko (sweetened red bean paste) for each individual dango.

Flavored Dango In Order of Tasting:
1) Fig 2) Sweet Potato 3) Sesame 4) And lastly, mochi has been wrapped around grape flavored anko into the shape of dango.

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.
