Yagasuri (scattered folding fans Black): Known as an auspicious pattern as the shape of the folding fan that widens at the bottom represents prosperity and growth, it had traditionally served to ward off evil and bad fortune as as it was believed that gods dwell in fans.
Urokomon (hemp leaf Green): Traditionally, a triangle has been regarded as a symbol that denotes protection against evil spirits; therefore, the pattern with aggregated triangles that form a hexagonal shape is believed to have stronger power to ward off evil. Also, hemp leaf that is durable and grows quickly symbolizes the hope for children to grow healthy and strong.
Sakura Tatewaku (scattered cherry blossoms Pink): "Sakura", the Japanese word for cherry blossoms, is said to be comprised of "sa" that refers to the god of rice field and "kura" that means a seat for the god, and hence, people believed that cherry blossoms signaled a year of good harvest.

Khimatsu (ivy Green): The pattern depicts ivy vines growing every which way without being broken, which symbolizes vitality, longevity and flourishing prosperity.
Seigaiha (Reishi clouds Light Blue): The cloud pattern is inspired by the form of Reishi mushrooms, a type of bracket fungus known as the symbol of immortality. Believed to be the cloud that appears as an omen of good fortune, Reishigumo has been widely used in Japan as an auspicious pattern since ancient times.
