This silky smooth fabric is adorned with the classic 'seigaiha' pattern, also known as blue waves or fish scales. The repetitive pattern of waves was used on Chinese maps
to depict the sea. It was made popular by the artist Seikai Kanshichi.  
It is said to symbolise the desire for continued peaceful living, like tranquil waves. 

The fabric is a silk woven with a pattern of 'tsuyushiba ', a repeating pattern of crescent shaped motifs which symbolise Dew Drops on Grass. It means freshness and so is most commonly found on spring kimono.
