Studio D’Artisan focuses the softness, depth, and elegance of traditional Japanese hues into an unmatched Sashiko fabric, creating a vest with distinct allure.
Kakishibu-zome is a traditional dyeing technique dating back over 900 years to the Heian period. It's recounted that samurai and mountain priests donned reddish-brown attire dyed with persimmon tannin, which would alter its color when exposed to sunlight and air. Sun-dyeing, or patina, remains closely interwoven with the lives of Japanese people to this day.
The Studio D‘Artisan Kakishibu Sashiko tailored vest captivates not solely through the fusion of modern design, elegant fit, and authentic workwear details, but even more profoundly with its original 14-ounce Sashiko selvedge denim. The traditional "Kakishibu dyeing" melds persimmon juice (for the weft) and highly concentrated indigo (for the warp), preserving the innate texture of Sashiko.
