＜About EARTH WALL＞
Fabric development begins with the selection of raw materials.
The inspiration for EARTH WALL comes from the mud wall at the entrance of our workshop built over 130 years ago.
When we renovated the entrance, plywood was removed, revealing a base wall underneath. Fascinated by its indescribably attractive color and texture, it was decided to keep the base wall as was.
"SenkohSuiu" expresses such an unexpected encounter and beauty in life through the senses of sight and touch, incorporating the element of craft art into its materials.

After dyeing using the most traditional indigo-dyeing technique from ancient times using indigo leaves and lye, we apply a special natural dyeing technique that has a higher colorfastness (colorfastness, lightfastness) than usual.
Since all the dyeing is done by hand, unevenness and color pooling may occur in some areas.
Please consider only those who can understand the texture of the dyeing.
< C/#SUOH >
Sappanwood (Caesalpinia sappan L.) is a small tree of the blister family native to India, growing wild in tropical regions such as Malaysia and India. A similar species, brazilwood (Caesalpinia echinata) from eastern Brazil, is also used for dyeing. The core wood of these trees contains bradyrin, a precursor of red pigment, and has been used to dye red and other colors.
In Japan, it was introduced from China in the Asuka period (710-794) and was a very valuable dye favored by the nobility in the Heian period (794-1185). As shown in the Enki Shiki, a style of ceremony compiled in the middle of the Heian period, it was also used for clothing worn by the emperor for the "coronation ceremony.
