600 Year Old Tradition – Short Film on Japanese Indigo Dyeing
Who doesn’t enjoy learning more about the making process?
Indigo dyeing is such a mystical and unique craft that turns a simple leaf in to a wonderful deep dark blue. Japanese studio Mori Kougei have intertwined this ancient craft with their classic woodworking skill.
By using local dyers in the Tokushima area of Japan Mori Kougei have produced a series of trays that are crafted completely by hand. The ‘Hakkodate’ method of indigo dyeing in-particular uses only natural materials and does not require any chemicals.
