The silk scarf, or furoshiki, is one of the scarfs in the Olive Wind series. The design was inspired by the olive - the prefectural flower of Kagawa. Shodo Island in Kagawa is the origin of Japan's olives. After the Russo-Japanese War, the Japanese government planted olive saplings in Shodo, Mie, and Kagoshima. Only Shodo had the necessary sunlight and rainfall for the olive saplings to survive. Therefore, olives are one of the main attractions of Shodo. The Olive Wind series comprises six color variations, each symbolizing a natural stage in the development of the olive.
