Product Introspection: Natural Dye
|Tags:||#aizome #dorozome #muddyeing #naturaldye #naturalindigo #ronherman #visvim|
From Saturday, February 25th until Friday, March 3rd four separate Ron Herman locations in Sendagaya, Futakotamagawa, Roppongi, and Kobe will simultaneously host the exhibition and sales event, Product Introspection: Natural Dye. The event will examine traditional natural dyeing techniques that have been cultivated by visvim in its product development with a particular focus on Aizome (Indigo dyeing) and Dorozome (Mud dyeing) as well as the history and production processes associated with those techniques.
"As I searched for inspiration and things that fascinated me I arrived at the Natural Dyeing techniques we now utilize. The unique imperfections and textures that are born from organic techniques that make use of natural resources the land provides gives off a sense of humanity and individual charm. These techniques have been nurtured over a long period of time and the craftspeople who inherit the knowledge are still around in Japan. Rather than just treating these techniques as cultural preservation, I want to apply them towards the creation of products that are suited for our modern lifestyles and can be used for a long time into the future. With these craftspeople I wish to explore and discover new techniques that will provide depth and meaning to making things."
Hiroki Nakamura (visvim Creative Director)
