What is the KAKU-ASANOHA pattern? The Asanoha pattern resembles a hemp leaf. Since ancient times, the Asanoha design has been used in holy rituals in Japan. Also, it is a familiar design that is used for baby clothing as hemp plants are strong and grow well. It conveys a meaning of strength and beauty. Kaku-asanoha is a different version of the Asanoha pattern. ”Kaku” means square in Japanese, and Kaku-asanoha pattern is based on squares while Asanoha is based on triangles.
