Create Stunning Ai (Japanese Indigo Blue) Creations.

Unleash your creativity with the Aizome Japanese Indigo Dye Kit. Experience the art of traditional Japanese indigo dyeing and transform your clothing, table linens, and interior fabrics into mesmerizing ai (Japanese Indigo blue) masterpieces.

Derived from the leaves of the Japanese indigo plant, ai (藍) is a captivating indigo dye with a rich history. Introduced to Japan in the Nara period, it was initially reserved for aristocrats and samurai. Today, it graces a wide range of textiles, from kimono to blue jeans and linens, delivering a stunning deep blue hue rarely seen with synthetic dyes.

Immerse yourself in the allure of "Japanese blue," a term coined by English chemist Robert William Atkinson, who marveled at the indigo color during his visit to Japan in the 1870s. Now, you can capture that same breathtaking beauty with the Aizome Japanese Indigo Dye Kit.

This comprehensive kit includes a detailed instruction booklet in English, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable dyeing process. Explore various dyeing techniques, such as Shibori and gradation, to achieve captivating patterns and effects.

With enough materials to dye several t-shirts or blouses, the possibilities are endless. Simply gather 2 plastic bins, some old newspaper, and a tool to swirl the fabric in the dye, like a pair of long chopsticks. Follow the instructions, let your creativity flow, and witness the magic of ai come to life.

Embark on an indigo dyeing adventure with the Aizome Japanese Indigo Dye Kit. Dive into the enchanting world of ai and create truly unique pieces that exude the timeless beauty of Japanese indigo. Get ready to immerse yourself in the captivating art of indigo dyeing.
