The "Hinode-Awa" series draws its inspiration from Japan's rich and enduring tradition of colors. Japanese colors evoke warmth, familiarity, and a deep sense of comfort, rooted in the nation's diverse emotional landscape.

For their 45th anniversary, Studio D'Artisan created a denim fabric that beautifully encapsulates the essence of "Japanese colors" by using indigo and madder red. The natural indigo dye used in this denim is meticulously hand-dyed using the traditional "Awa-Sei Aizome" method. This technique involves approximately 30 cycles of washing to reveal the true nature of the indigo color. With each wash, discordant shades are washed away, and the fabric gradually reveals a profound and harmonious hue. This process embodies the concept of indigo as a living color, ever-evolving with time and wear.

In contrast, the weft is dyed using the natural plant-based dye known as "madder red" (茜). The history of madder red dyeing in Japan dates back centuries, with records suggesting its use as a gift by Queen Himiko and later as the red color of the national flag, also known as the "Hinomaru," during the Meiji era. This deep indigo hue achieved through the "Awa-Sei Aizome" method beautifully harmonizes with the madder red from plant-based dyeing. The result is a uniquely colored fabric, reminiscent of traditional Japanese noble attire and a color reserved for the aristocracy in ancient times. This denim effortlessly combines elegance and grace, allowing wearers to bask in the splendor of Japan's beautiful colors.
