Cohana - Traditional Japanese Colours
Cohana is a brand derived from the goddess of Japanese mythology - Konohanasakuyahime. Konohanasakuya is as beautiful as the cherry blossoms, and is worshiped as the god of Mt. Fuji, which symbolizes Japan, and means prosperity.
Cohana uses traditional Japanese colours that reflect the changing of the seasons - Aqua (light green), Blue, Grey, Pink and Yellow.
Aqua - The pale greenish blue color is called Mizuasa Aoi. The lightly dyed indigo dye is sometimes called Mizuasa Aoi. A refreshing color reminiscent of the clear water of the mountains.
Blue - The pale greenish blue color is called Mizuasa Aoi. The lightly dyed indigo dye is sometimes called Mizuasa Aoi. A refreshing color reminiscent of the clear water of the mountains.
Grey - Light gray with a light blue tinge. This color name comes from the innocent young people of Edo Fukagawa and the kimono that the geisha ream began to wear during the Edo period. It is a stylish color with a "chic" aesthetic sense peculiar to Japanese people.
Pink - Rose flower color. In Japan, a bright imagination of all good things is expressed as "a rosy future." Pink rose flower language includes "happiness, gratitude, and elegance."
Yellow - Bright yellow of daffodil flowers. It is a color that makes you feel excited and happy just by looking at it. It is said that the name of the daffodil flower comes from "because its neat appearance is like a hermit."
