-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.
Horizontally, the fabric is stretched and pulled tight between the two ends of the dye workshop. This is about 15 meters in length. The fabric width is between 50 and 100 cm. Width-wise it is spread tight with narrow bamboo sticks called ’shinshi’ in Japanese. Please check our products with this beautiful fabric below.
