KAKISHIBUZOME

Hand sewing thread dyed with the persimmons astringent juice


Persimmon juice (KAKISHIBU) is a natural material deeply involved in the life of Japanese people for more than 1000 years. The thread dyed with persimmon juice discolors by ultra-violet rays, oxidation, temperature and humidity, and gradually changes to tasteful colors. You can enjoy the natural change of color with time.

Note on the use of KAKISHIBUZOME

・Even in the same color number, its shade may slightly differ from others depending on the lot, because the dyeing process is being made all by hand. It has the peculiar smell to persimmon juice.
・To avoid the extreme shade change, refrain from keeping it in the place that gets sunlight directly.
・If you wash it with a mild alkaline detergent and/or in water which contains a lot of iron, it may turn black.
・In case it was blackened, putting it in water which is diluted by vinegar or reconstituted lemon juice will bring the color back to some extent.
・Do not use the detergent which contains bleach, because it will lose the colors.
・Please pay special attention to handle as dyeing with persimmon juice is weak against rubbing and its color may stain to others.
