The 24 varieties of KARACHO patterns can be enjoyed visually, but wouldn’t it be wonderful if you knew the meaning behind each one when you made a purchase? Store staffs are ready to assist, but it might be a good idea to check out these two books sold at the register so you can choose patterns on your own. The blue book in particular uses illustrations to explain KARACHO patterns and their meanings (The author is Aiko Senda’s husband, karakami master Toto Akihito). Find your favorite patterns as you read!
