The Japanese national character has been described as reflecting an “island nation mentality,” re ferring to the sense of being a self-contained society and a culture isolated from others by the surrounding seas. Whether this is the case or not, it is certainly true that the sea plays an enormous role in Japanese culture, history, society, art, and identity. Japan’s coastal waters are estimated to contain more than 2,000 diffe rent varieties of fish, and almost all edible species have played some role in Japanese cuisine. Therefore, villages like Ine, the small fishing village north of Kyoto that inspires this collection, are absolutely central to Japan’s history and tradition. This collection pays homage to water and its ever-changing look, overlaying premium mesh and suede with net, and playing within a colour palette of deep sea blue, stone grey and wooden brown. The Fishermen Kizuna pack includes the Wave Prophecy LS, the Wave Mujin TL and the Wave Rider 10 .
