Made in USA 
Koinobori, the whimsical windsocks shaped like carp, hold a significant place in Japanese tradition, adorning the skies every May 5th in celebration of Children's Day, a cherished national holiday. These vibrant symbols carry a deeper meaning, as each carp represents a distinct family member. The color choices hold a special significance: black carp embody the spirit of fathers, while blue and green carp embody the joy and vitality of children. As for the orange carp, they represent the nurturing and compassionate essence of mothers. When these colorful koinobori dance in the wind, they not only create a delightful spectacle but also serve as a powerful testament to the love and unity within families, honoring the unique role played by each family member.
