What is the origin of the "Wacoal" corporate name?

Before the company became Wacoal, its name was Wako Shoji and it used a clover for its trademark. When redesigning this trademark, the company decided to add an additional Chinese character to the two characters for wako (which contained a reference to the founder’s hometown) to signify a desire to ensure the company continued into the future. Together, in Japanese these characters could be pronounced wacoal. And given that this trademark started to take root among consumers, the company also changed its name (trading name) to Wacoal in 1957.
