US made vintage scarf, has Kanji writing

Postby isewribbons » Wed 01.16.2013 3:47 pm

Hello, I was just wondering if I could challenge someone to translate this for me. It is a vintage shawl/scarf a friend gave to me, and I know only two kanji off the top of my head! LOL I know. It's sad.

I *think* it says love 愛 in here a couple of times, but I would like to know what the rest of it says.

Please, I'd appreciate it! Thank you.

Some of the 'words' I see are:
福愛和
幸財 
富財
幸福
和幸福
愛富
栄平和福

However, they aren't really words for the most part unless they're chinese.
Some of the characters I can't decipher (or can't put in the effort to decipher since they don't seem to form words or any coherent message.)

love peace prosperity happiness harmony etc.

These are kanji you'd associate with good fortune.
