Product Details

It is my pleasure to announce the Collection of Kakishibu Dye Sashiko Thread (Dye Batch in 2019). It took a lot of challenge to make this happen... after almost a year of struggling, it is our honor to have them in stock. In comparison to the previous Kakishibu Dye (Collection 2017 & 2018), the thread has the matte result. I enjoy the softness of this color, and I am sure the beautiful matte color will make your Sashiko stitching more authentic.

The photo-shooting could add the luster a bit... so please check my hands photo-taken with the Sashiko thread. I tried to take photos in several condition, so I hope I am communicating the best possible color appearance of this beautiful Kakishibu Dye Sashiko Thread Collection (2019)

Please be advised that the Kaki

Kaki Persimmon Tannin Dye (Kakishibu) change the color by UV like the sunlight.

About Kakishibu

We fortunately found a great Kakishibu Dye professionals, and thanks to their help, we achieved these 5 beautiful colors.

[Important note] - Please read

Since the outcome of Kakishibu Dye greatly varies from the sunlight, it is very difficult to have the exact same color. We keep eye on the inventory, but there is a possibility of being in short. In those cases, we may ask you to agree to receive the most similar color to your order. Since every threads are dyed by hands with natural dyes, the colors may be a bit different from the photos depends on the screen you are looking at. The difference in variegated colors may be less significant because of the "variegated" character. If you have the specific colors you would like to have in your mind, please contact Atsushi first. We will do everything to match your preference. Thank you for your understanding.
