NATURAL INDIGO DYE
We create our hand dyed items using natural Japanese Indigo Dye (directly sourced from Japan) and applying Ai-zome, Japan's ancient art of dyeing to create unique patterns.
Japanese Indigo dye is from the plant called tade (smartweed in English). It is fermented and becomes the base for the dye called sukumo.
This Indigo dye is natural and is said to act as an insect repellant, anti-bacterial, and shields against sunburn.
We hand dye each item delicately.
