#koipond is an idea I've been toying with for a while .. a family of individually hand-dyed, and completely unique hanks, linked by common colours. A trip to Hong Kong a few years ago, and the tanks swarming with these revered fish that I saw there, is indelibly inked into my memory.
In Japan, koi represent good fortune or luck and are associated with perseverance in adversity and strength or courage - 'koi' is also a homophone for another word that means affection or love, so they also represent relationships.
Now, I'm introducing 'Showa' to the collection - a black and orange 'small batch' variety
*Due to the techniques used in the dye process, colours will vary slightly throughout the hanks and between batches.
