Make It Count Japanese Cherry Blossom Iron-On Woven Patch
This iron-on woven patch says says One Life, One Encounter, in Japanese.
Cherry Blossom motif featuring the Japanese idiom "Ichi-go ichi-e" - 'One Life, One Encounter'.
The concept of treasuring the unrepeatable nature of each unique moment.
The term reminds us to cherish any gathering that they may take part in, acknowledging the fact that any moment in life can't be repeated.
Why we love it:
- It's completely unique and has a powerful message.
- It adds colour and attitude to any denim jacket or bag.
- It's original and not something you'll see everyone else wearing.
- Large 70mm width statement patch.
Getting together with family and friends, that particular gathering, can never be replicated, each trip to the pub or dinner party is a unique experience, made all the more unique by the people we share it with, and in that way, each moment is always a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Our friends and family are what matters most to us and this is a constant reminder to cherish every get together and gathering.
All we have in life is the moment we are currently experiencing.
Ichi-go ichi-e is associated with Zen Buddhism and concepts of transience.
Particularly linked with the Japanese tea ceremony, it is often brushed onto scrolls which are then hung in the tea room.
Our range of uplifting motto's and idioms now feature three new Japanese titles with some important themes as relevant today as ever.
Transience - To remind us of the fleeting nature of each moment we have paired Cherry Blossom with the Japanese idiom meaning ‘One Life, One Encounter’ which encourages us to cherish each unique moment.
Balance - Two Koi swimming in perfect harmony accentuates the message ‘Beloved Person’ in Japanese. A wonderful way to let someone know they are very much loved, whilst promoting the importance of harmony and balance in our lives.
Resilience - Perhaps the most dramatic of all is the Great Wave, brilliantly embodying the Japanese motto ‘Fall Seven Times, Stand Up Eight’ which, with elegant simplicity conveys the importance of never giving up.
