Kakishibu has a deep-rooted history in Japanese craft culture & tradition, dating back to the early 13th century when it was first introduced to Japan from China. Annually in late August, unripe persimmon is harvested as their tannin or juice is extracted. Used as a multi-solution tool, Kakishibu was used to cure hangovers, for wood lacquering, and even as a clearing agent for sake, to name only a few of the varied applications of the historic dye.
Studio D'Artisan once again pushes the boundaries of Kakishibu, this time combining this quintessentially Japanese dye with a heavyweight Sashiko fabric base. Kakishibu dye can almost be regarded as a living entity, in that it reacts to the surrounding environment and will age gracefully with extended wear. In particular, Kakishibu dye will react to UV rays and darken over time.
