  • From Japanese

    It is said that the number of Japanese traditional colors is more than hundreds. This represents the richness of nature and diversity of living things in Japan. Pick flowers, leaves, stems and roots, extract their colors through decocting, and dye silk or cotton thread.  Minerals such as iron or copper are also used for fixing colors.  Kusaki-zome is an art piece amalgamating diverse blessings of nature.
