Ever since we started creating colors with Natural Vegetable/Herbs for Sashiko Thread, we have been longing for achieving two big goals, dyeing with Indigo and Kakishibu (Persimmon Tannin). We finally took one step to make it happen. Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya now prepares to offer the First Indigo Dyed Sashiko Thread. Although Kakishibu Dyed thread would need more trials and research, Indigo Dyed Sashiko Thread turned out good colors to enough to start selling for the first time, after so many challenges.
Deep Blue. Never ending challenges. Just beautiful regardless.
Dyeing with Indigo requires extra attentions in the process. Indigo is very strong that it affect the other Natural Dye. Ideally, the dyeing artist should have a separate room for Indigo Dyeing. Even more, the dyeing studio may be better of if the place is designed exclusively for Indigo Dyeing. We couldn’t afford for the space like this, so it was a challenge to even try. However, after many mistakes, we could finally put color on our Sashiko thread, for the first time.
It has deep, very beautiful blue. We believe the combination of Indigo Dye Fabric and this Indigo Dyed thread would be so wonderful. We are working on it as well.
The First Indigo Dyed Sashiko Thread
Our First Indigo Dyed Sashiko Thread is now in preparation to introduce in the market. In the USA, I would list them on Amazon as well as our online stores. I am so happy to be able to add Indigo Dyed Sashiko Thread to our Natural Dye Sashiko Thread Collection. Every color has a limited number of skeins in stock. Enjoy the beautiful Natural color in your project!
