Collaborative capsule with GOODHOOD - London fusing the ancient Japanese technique of Aizome dying with contemporary art. All pieces included in the capsule are unique and handmade, dyed with ancient techniques from Japan, sustainably utilizing only the power of nature. Aizome (Japanese for Indigo) has been a big part of Japan's culture for centuries. The Aizome studio C.C.P. collaborated with to create this capsule is based on the oceanside of Japan, Chiba. The Ayaki Indigo Luv Studio is a sustainable lifestyle-driven workshop run by individuals using the indigo dyeing technique Sho-Aizome, which is a 100% sustainable dying method. This technique was used during the Muromachi period (A.D. 1500) and is the most ecological way of indigo dye since all ingredients are biodegradable. To create the indigo dye liquid, "Sukumo", composted indigo leaves, and "lye” derived from wood ash are combined and gradually transformed due to the power of fermentation. To further enhance the fermentation process, the Sukumo gets fed with bran or shell ash for rich bacteria growth and nutrition. In the final step, the color fastening, the dyed fabric is solely oxidized in water and air and fastened through the energy of the sun. 

Through the natural process from plant to dye liquid in which only the energy from mother Earth is borrowed, the Aizome method transforms and enhances the properties of the dyed garments, naturally increasing the durability of the fabric, adding antibacterial and odorless attributes.

This Tie Dye Longsleeve Tee features graphics from UK-based artist Laurie Herman on a fully Aizome dyed body.
