SDA is back with their latest "Amami Dorozome" series featuring beautiful deep earthy tones, only achievable thanks to the handful of Shokunin (or artisans) that continue to employ the tedious dyeing process of Dorozome (mud dyeing in Japanese).

The art of Dorozome seeps deep into the history of the island of Amami-Oshima, a collection of islands north of Okinawa. Historically, the natural dye (derived from Sharimbai, or wood chips from the Japanese Hawthorne tree), was used to color natural silk, to be used in the production of Kimono.

Blending the function of natural dyes, artisanal craftsmanship, and traditional Japanese dyeing methods, the Shokunin of the small island town of Amami-Oshima, have gone above and beyond in the dyeing of the yarns for each piece in this stellar collection.

*Model is pictured wearing a size 40. He weighs 59kg (130 pounds) and is 178cm (5’11”) tall.
