These threads are hand-dyed with indigo by a group of Japanese indigo farmers and artists named BUAISOU.

~~~

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 and 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 sashiko thread.

There are two options of thread thickness in each color: 
- THIN (20/4) 
- THICK (20/6)

The thread used is milled by Daruma in Japan. Known for their high quality, Daruma threads are made of cotton with a high sheen and are tightly and evenly spun for durability.

FAQ: Which thickness of thread should I choose?

A: Technically, the thinner thread goes well with lighter-weight fabrics, and vice versa for thicker threads and fabric. However, artistically, similar to choosing the thickness of your brush when painting, you can use either thickness for effect.
