[Herbal Dyeing]
Dyeing methods that rely on natural color sources like the fruits, roots and flowers of wild plants have been practiced in Japan since as early as the sixth century. Known for its ability to create complicated hues with a character and depth impossible to attain through chemicals, herbal dyeing is one of Japan's oldest dyeing techniques.

[Ryukyuan Indigo Dyeing]
Developed in the Ryukyu Islands, this method of indigo dyeing incorporates perennial herbs from the acanthus family as a raw material. These plants are raised and harvested on the island of Okinawa, but a recent decline in the number of Okinawan farmers and artisanal dyers has made Ryukyuan indigo hard to find. The fabric for this collection was dyed by craftsmen from Kyoto who have mastered this unique technique.
