Koinobori Haiku Dew
''露とくとく (tsuyu toku toku)
試みに浮世 (kokoromi ni ukiyo)
すすがばや (susugaba ya) ''
''Drop by drop dew
Could I wash there
The dust of this world.''
Do you know how to say drop in Japanese? Poro Poro (ぽろぽろ). Isn't it cute? And the onomatopoeia of the sound of falling drops is called toku toku (得々). These drops are precisely taken up in the resolutely graphic aesthetics of our koinobori Dew to integrate this melancholic haiku. Unique fact, one side is in French and the other in Japanese! 2 other koinobori complete the Haiku collection: Clouds and Plum tree.
More about the koinobori
The koinobori, carp-shaped windsock, is a mythical object in Japan: it is the gift that we offer to little boys, and more and more to little girls, at the children's party (Kodomo No Hi) May 5th.
Koinobori, an ethical and organic gift idea
This koi carp, made of organic cotton, is very popular among lovers of Japan. It represents a colourful and joyful nod to Japanese design. Madame Mo windsock is a wonderful ethical and chic birth gift, a stylish Japanese-inspired gift for all those, young and old, who love to decorate their world in a unique way.
Madame Mo and her poetic world, highly appreciated with Japanese
By making koinobori the only playground of her creativity, Madame Mo offers a real invitation to discover Japan, its culture and traditions. As incredible as it may seem, the Japanese love koinobori Madame Mo! Our carpstreamers play with strict Japanese codes, revisit the Japanese tradition in a modern way, and this gives birth to original, elegant and unique Koi carps. Every year, concept stores as selective as Isetan or Takashimaya do us a honor by selecting and exhibiting Madame Mo koinobori!
