Great happiness, matchmaking

For hundreds of years, the confectionery store Toraya has been delighting customers with its beautifully crafted traditional Japanese sweets. Sensing a kindred spirit, we collaborated with them on the creation of this pattern that expresses a desire for both of our cultures to carry on into the future, continuing to bring happiness to people. The pattern is based on the designs of yokan sweets that have been passed down through generations at Toraya, brought together like a fun collection of lucky charms.
