<Thinking about the color of Kasuri>
Kurume Kasuri features traditional indigo-dyed fabrics. Since hand-woven indigo-dyed Kasuri is still made, it has a strong image of dark blue. It’s actually the most popular color. However, indigo dyeing is a traditional technique called (fermentation), so it is difficult to dye many at once because it is dyed by hand. Therefore, most of the Kurume Kasuri that are currently made are dyed with chemical dyes.
The advantage of chemical dyes is that they have less discoloration. If you handle the laundry based on the quality label, there will be almost no discoloration or color transfer. However, since Kurume Kasuri is a 100% cotton natural material, it naturally fades due to aging.
