In a rural corner of Japan, there are a group of people who work together under the name BUAISOU who are completely dedicated to indigo. BUAISOU is comprised of a farm, dye studio, and design-studio. They are located in Tokushima prefecture, the historical center of indigo farming and processing in Japan. Every year they grow and harvest their own indigo, dry the leaves, and compost them. They combine this compost with wood ash lye, wheat bran, and water and use fermentation to create indigo vats. Within these vats, they dye every shade of blue, on items such as this fabric and sashiko thread. You can read more about BUAISOU and learn how to make this kind of indigo vat in our book, Journeys in Natural Dyeing.

We adore BUAISOU's work and seeing the array of blues together makes us swoon. So we thought for this holiday season, we would offer special samplers.

+ Version 1 includes 1/8 of a yard of their cotton fabric (13 3/4" wide) in pale indigo, light indigo, indigo, and dark indigo and a hank of their indigo-dyed (20/6) sashiko thread.

+ Version 2 includes 1/8 of a yard of their cotton fabric (13 3/4" wide) in light indigo, indigo, and dark indigo and a hank of their indigo-dyed (20/6) sashiko thread. 

+ Version 3 includes 1/8 of a yard of their cotton fabric (13 3/4" wide) in pale indigo, light indigo, indigo, and dark indigo, as well as 1/8 of a yard of their ramie fabric in light indigo and dark indigo, and a hank of their indigo-dyed (20/4) sashiko thread. (The ramie fabric is incredible.) Choose either pale indigo or dark indigo and pale indigo thread.
