A pearl uncovered by the pearl divers of Mikimoto.
Koinobori Silver comes straight out of Mikimoto, the Isle of Pearls located in the Toba region. This place was a paradise for Ama, pearl oyster divers, who have been practising snorkeling for two thousand years and perpetuating a very established tradition (initiation around 12-13 years, observation of the elders to reach maturity around 40 years, daily diving sessions at a depth of about 10 meters). Koinobori Silver blends elegantly with Koinobori Golden and Koinobori Plum.
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!
