Gods & Demons

Introducing Cravat Club's latest collection of printed silk pocket squares - Gods & Demons.

These Japanese Ukiyo-e woodblock print-inspired pieces are stunningly hand drawn, featuring Japanese motifs both ancient and modern. Meaning Pictures of the Floating World, Ukiyo-e woodblock prints depict quintessential life and culture in Japan, becoming very famous and sought after. 

This collection delves into the intricate tapestry of Japanese mythology, where gods and demons, locked in eternal struggle, run amok. Within the expanse of Japanese folklore, these entities embody the essence of human virtues, vices, and the battle between light and darkness. Hand drawn by Japanese artist Yusuke Aoki, each piece is an exploration of an important theme from myth and superstition.

The pantheon of Japanese gods, known as kami 神 - contains a diverse array of deities, each revered for their unique powers and attributes. From the benevolent guardians of nature to the enigmatic figures of creation and wisdom, these divine beings hold sway over the natural world and human affairs alike. Their stories are steeped in ancient traditions, weaving together myths of creation, love and heroic exploits that have endured through the ages.

By contrast, the realm of demons, or oni 鬼 - embodies the darker facets of human nature, representing malevolence, temptation and chaos. These fearsome creatures lurk in the shadows, embodying the primal fears and desires of mortals. Yet they also serve as cautionary figures, challenging individuals to confront their inner demons and to overcome adversity.

This captivating collection of silk pocket squares invites the wearer on a journey through the depths of the Japanese imagination. Each design captures the essence of these mythical beings, evoking wonder and reverence for the timeless tales that continue to shape Japan's cultural identity.

Our Gods & Demons silk pocket squares are exclusive designs for Cravat Club, hand drawn in Kanagawa, Japan, and handcrafted with care here in England.
