Today we are presenting the project with Kakishibu dye, for sustainable, natural and chemical free raincoats. The opening of the exhibition at A.Petersen Collection & Craft, is today from 17-19.
We should look more to Kakishibu as an organic alternative to the chemicals surrounding us, because Kakishibu is totally natural, and it contributes no toxins to the enviroment.
In fact, in a controlled study kakishibu actually broke down formaldehyde, one of the main contributor to sick house syndrome.
Almost all natural dye need some kind of mordant (chemical assist) to form the bond with the fiber. Bacause kakishibu bind with itselft rather than the fiber, no mordant is needed. In addidtion to simplifying the dye procedure, it allows the dyer to keep it an organic, non-toxic completely natural process. *reference: Kakishibu – Traditional Persimmon Dye of Japan by Chris Conrad
