HonAi Te-Nassen - Genuine indigo Hand printing
Indigo-dyeing is very old and was established in ancient Egypt.
However in Japan, Genuine Indigo Hand printing may have flourished during the Edo period due to cotton growth and popularilty.
In this hand-printing method called ‘Tatezome’
we reduce the a mount of indigo then take it into the oxidation processand finaly the dyeing processs.
There is no difference between this handprinting technic and normalonegenuine indigo hand print andnomal one except using botanical glue for designed-pattern dyeing.

Natural indigo

NATURAL INDIGO

We developed theTatezome printing method with the Kyoto City Dyeing Test Center. Then we succeeded in making a botanical glue that matches the indigo pigment. Our research on the steaming process could stabilize the indigo color on the fabric. They can express fine lines, creat color gradient and maintain the original fabric color which is white.. These abilityes are unprecedented.

Dyeing width is 120 cm
