Edo-Kiriko features designs like none other. Many of popular patterns were made during the Edo Period. They are derived from traditional tools used in daily life and from patterns found from nature, for example Yarai (bamboo palisade pattern), Nanako (fish-egg/fish-scale pattern), Sasanoha (bamboo leaves), chrysanthemum flowers, hemp leaf or Kagome (basket weave) etc...

With elegant designs, the works of Edo-Kiriko will captivate anybody's heart.
The pattern of "yarai" is a checkered pattern that combines thick and thin lines. Outlining the shape of a crossed bamboo palisade, this pattern represents a safety fence and it's said to have protective powers against evil spirits. As the name suggests, the "sasa-no-ha" pattern is characterized by its luxurious cuts imitating bamboo leaves. As bamboo tress continue to grow thick foliage even during midwinter, they are known for their vitality and considered to be lucky charms in Japan. And it is one of Edo-Kiriko's representative patterns, appearing in numerous works.
By combining traditional patterns, a new pattern is created. The design is well integrated with the form of the glass itself, creating a sense of unity.
