Japanese indigo tie-dye T-shirt

This tie-dyed T-shirt is made with carefully selected materials and shapes and is dyed with indigo.

Hitoshi Konya, a married couple in Matsusaka City, Mie Prefecture, carries out the traditional Japanese method of ``Hondate Sei Aizome,'' which has been practiced since the Muromachi period.

This is a special tie-dyed T-shirt that is made by cultivating indigo without using any pesticides, and each piece is hand-dyed.

In modern times, indigo dyeing using chemicals is the mainstream, but there are still only a few people in Japan who grow indigo using ancient methods and make dyes.

Because it requires more effort, time, and care than regular indigo, many craftsmen quit because the results are not worth it, making it a valuable product. ``Hondate Sei Aizome''.

In April 2023, when the indigo seeds were just rolled, I visited Hitoshi Konya.

In the center of the photo is "Sukumo," a dye made from indigo. On the right is the "bed" where the harvested indigo is dried, fermented, and aged.

In order to improve water drainage, the bedding is removed every year and the beds are made. In order to explore the ancient methods of Japan, Mr. Hitoshi sometimes reads the ``Kojiki'', so much so that he uses traditional methods to make his pieces.

His wife Miyuki dyed the indigo dye that was created using Hitoshi's experience and intuition, as well as his powerful yet delicate work.

Hitoshi Konya's indigo dyeing does not cause the so-called fading that occurs with vegetable dyeing, and changes to a clear blue color after repeated washing and drying.

You can wash it in the washing machine as usual, so you can wear it without hesitation.

There are two patterns: the white T-shirt is a pale indigo color, and the beige T-shirt is a strong indigo color.

Because each piece is hand-dyed, no two patterns are the same.

The pattern may differ from the photo, but the pattern is exquisite and you can feel the professional craftsmanship.

'Tranquila' printed in calligraphy means 'relax' in Spanish.

“Calm down” “Let’s take it easy”. In Central and South America, it is often used with such nuances.

It contains a stylish message using words that give you a feel of Latin rhythm.

The neck is not too open, and the shoulder width is just the right size.

It has increased durability so the collar will not become sagging even after repeated washing.

Not too thick or too thin, just the right thickness.

It has a compact silhouette that is easy to layer, so it can be layered with a shirt or under a dress.

This is a T-shirt that you want to wear alone and make it the centerpiece.
