    1. -Hikizome-
      Hikizome (lit. ‘pull dye’) is a traditional Japanese dye technique in which fabric is stretched tight, water is applied and then dye is applied by hand with a brush. Painting the dye into the wet fabric causes it to blur. This technique can also be known as bokashizame, (lit. ‘blur dye’). We have 2 colors for this Hikizome collection. Both name comes from famous sightseeing spots in Kyoto.
