I was very impressed when I first studied traditional method of dyeing Kimono” Oshima tsumugi” at Amami island. The way of dyeing “ Oshima Tsumugi” was very hard also takes a lots of process to dye for one piece. In the way, most unique point is creating tie-dye with loom, deep colour with nature material.
Firstly it need to prepare the weaving fabric to tie dye yean, then undo the fabric to yeans, secoundly socked in paddy field with iron mordant for many times (called as mud dye), then weave again. I am very admired the tecnique who creat it in ancient times. mills using method of traditional dyeing which is combination of " indigo dye (indian indigo)" and "rhaphiolepis indica var. umbellata" to make beautifull colour shade.
