Kyoto Black Dyeing [京黒紋付染]
Kyoto Black Dyeing has a long history, dating back to the Heian period.At that time, ink dyeing was done.
Originally, it was worn by monks and samurai as ceremonial clothing, and in the Edo period, in order to express a deep black color, a technique called Benishita, Aishita, in which the fabric was first dyed with red or indigo, was adopted.
At that time, the fabric was dyed black with a plant dye called binroji.Binroji-dyed black crests became so strong that they were said to be impervious to swords, and black crests became popular among samurai.
In the Meiji era, a haori and a hakama with family crests became the first formal attire for men, and it is said that this style spread to the general public.
In black dyeing, the base dye is repeated many times to create a deep color, and the colors are layered.Black dyeing, which takes a lot of time and effort, is dyed by raising and lowering the fabric dozens of times while subtly changing the temperature of the dye based on the dyeing craftsmanship and unique intuition born of many years of experience.
The technology of Kyoto Black Dyeing has evolved with the times, based on the dyeing craftsmen's insatiable quest for the real black. In 1979, Kyoto Black Dyeing was designated as a national traditional craft.
The black pursued by Kyoto Black Dyeing is not only the actual color of black, but also the power of the spirit that governs the feelings of the Japanese people.Please enjoy the [ultimate black] of Kyoto montsuki black dyeing born from an insatiable quest for black.
