Traditionally in Japan, cotton fabrics were considered an indispensable commodity. Kimonos were not always seen as simply a statement, reserved for special occasions. Historically, Kimono were worn every day through harsh Winters and scorching Summers. As such, clothing was re-used repeatedly and never thrown away. Even when completely worn out, fabrics were carefully stitched and patched back together.
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.
