"Kakishibu dyeing" is a traditional dyeing technique that has been passed down since the Heian period more than 900 years ago. It is said that samurai and yamabushi wore reddish-brown clothes dyed with persimmon tannin during the Heian period. Due to its high bactericidal and deodorant effects, the cloth dyed with persimmon tannin, which was also used as a Chinese herbal medicine, changes color when exposed to sunlight and air and becomes deeper in color, so it is also called sun dyeing and has been dyed for a long time. We will continue to be close to the lives of Japanese people.
D'Artisan used the yarn dyed with this "Kakishibu dyeing" to create a new original fabric combined with indigo yarn. In order to give a rough texture, we use thick ultra uneven yarn, which is 6.7 for both warp and weft yarns, which makes the weave more uneven than usual. Furthermore, we were able to create a crude atmosphere by weaving Nep yarn (a yarn that leaves knots formed during spinning) randomly dyed with indigo into the weft yarn .
The hickory stripes are based on the motif of random hickory, also known as "parent-child hickory". Hickory, which is a standard work style pattern, is now available in "KAKISHIBU DENIM HICKORY Jeans", which has an unprecedented color combined with the Japanese color of "Kakishibu Dyeing".
