Aizome Indigo Dye Japanese Tea Tin
Aizome (藍染め) is a Japanese traditional indigo dyeing technique that is hundreds of year old.
So what makes Aizome so special? For one, the natural process is completely safe and environmentally friendly, with no chemicals used, and the dye concoction also happens to be a natural insect repellent.Producing a beautifully deep blue colour, aizome is the result of two different fermentation processes where indigo leaves are first dried and fermented, then fermented a second time with other natural ingredients before eventually becoming indigo dye.A living organism, the indigo is made with lots of care and attention as each vat of dye can result in different hues. This lends an artisanal quality to indigo-dyed products, which in turn makes them so highly coveted.
