[Restocked 2021]

We decided continue this beautiful journey with Kakishibu Persimmon Tannin Dye. This is a batch we made in 2020, and start offering it in 2021.


Persimmon (Kakishibu) Dye requires deep experience and detailed techniques to prepare the appropriate materials and stabilize the color. First of all, the Kakishibu liquid smells bad, I mean, really bad. We fortunately found a great Kakishibu Dye professionals, and thanks to their help, we achieved these 5 beautiful colors.


Persimmon Dye = Persimmon Tannin = Kakishibu

Kakishibu is a form of liquid (or sometime powdered) made from un-ripe persimmon. Get the juice from green un-ripe persimmon and ferment the juice.


Five Shades options (Choices) are available.

  • K2B (2105) - Persimmon Dark Brown (Burned Brown) *It looks like Black on the photo, but it is closwer to Dark Brown, with a slight of variegation of Gray Area. - SOLD OUT.
  • K3 (2105) - Persimmon Gray slight Variegated (Less Variegated, more Solid than the photo).
  • K4 (2105) - Persimmon Silver / Light Gray
  • K5 (2105) - Persimmon Gold/Ocher/Brown Variegated

*Stock is limited. We will not be able to restock the same color (We need to wait for the next batch, which will be available in 2022).

*It is challenging to replicate the exact same color on the screen. Please refer to my hand color for the comparison. I will keep adding photos.

*The pricing is for 1 skein of Sashiko Thread.

*I received a review mentioning about the color of K2B. It is NOT the pitch-black we imagine. It is more like dark brown with black taste.


[Important Note]

Please Read Before Purchase

*The layer of Kakishibu Persimmon Tannin will make Sashiko thread stiff. The darker the color is, the more stiff it gets. For example, the Dark Brown Color (K2B) is the most stiff one in this collection. If you would like to soften the thread, you may soak the thread to the luke water with a bit of fabric softner. Since we wanted to keep thread as less chemical as possible, we kept it as is. Even the thread is stiff, the experience of stitching won't be so different.

*Since Kakishibu Dye is a type of dye "addig the layer" to the thread, some of the dark color (here the Dark Brown Color K2B) may leave Black/Brown color on the fabric when you take the threads out after stitching on the light (white) fabric.

*Since the outcome of Kakishibu Dye greatly varies from the sunlight, it is very difficult to have the exact same color. We keep eye on the inventory, but there is a possibility of being in short. In those cases, we may ask you to agree to receive the most similar color to your order. Since every threads are dyed by hands with natural dyes, the colors may be a bit different from the photos depends on the screen you are looking at. The difference in variegated colors may be more significant because of the "variegated" character. If you have the specific colors you would like to have in your mind, please contact Atsushi first. We appreciate your understanding.

Coron Sashiko Thread #10 Coron Sashiko Thread #15

Coron Sashiko Thread is one of the best Sashiko thread.

We have been so many years of relationship with Coron Thread Manufacture Company. We sincerely believe their thread is one of the best thread available in the market. They are made in Japan and made from Egyptian Cotton 100%. They aren’t the cheapest option, but the price is reasonable considering the length of thread (145-meters) and the quality. In fact, it is the best option to get the better Sashiko result. I always use Coron Sashiko Thread and merely use the other brand thread.

I hope you find these thread appropriate (the best) to your Sashiko project.
