“Kurohachijo” is a silk fabric from the Akigawa River basin, which was popular nationwide during the Edo period. This technique of dyeing with nuts called Alnus firma and mud from the Akigawa River was once lost in the Meiji era. At the thread workroom “Itokobo Mori” in Akiruno City, the technique that has been forgotten over so much time has been reactivated by self-taught craftsmen and is now exhibited and sold under the name “Itsukaichi Dyeing”. Why don’t you get the stylish black that once helped color the world of the geisha and has been revived in the present age in Itsukaichi?
