January's exclusive pin club design.
Our design features a tiger holding a hamaya, a decorative arrow with the kanji for luck on it. In the past, boys would receive this along with a matching bow called hamayumi on their first new year, as a protective ward. The word “hama” itself comes from the name of a target used in archery events. Later on, hama was assigned the kanji 破魔, literally meaning to drive off demons, thus giving it a protective connotation. We hope that this pin will also bring you good luck and protection into the new year!
