juicy persimmon greetings card

One in a series of greetings cards designed by Caroline using inspiration from time spent living in Kobe, Japan. Taken from artwork created with hand carved stamps of iconic Japanese symbols.

Persimmon, or kaki in Japanese, is a fruit enjoyed in the autumn months in Japan. Native to China, the tree spread to Japan over 1000 years ago. The beautiful plump orange fruits are visible against the leaf-less branches in autumn and one variety is dried to create the sweet treat called hoshigaki. Celebrations around New Year time include the fruit for cooking, decoration and association with good luck and longevity.
