“ISSO” is the brand name of Aizome (indigo dye: ai means indigo and zo-me or so-me means dyeing) atelier, conducted by Tokiko Kajimoto.
We make Aizome products by a traditional technique that has been handed down from the past, using only natural materials: the rare natural blue dye “Awa-Ai (also called as Sukumo)”, lye of trees (oak, cherry tree, etc.), lime and very special Sake of Tokushima (or Fusuma, bran that is sieved when it is milled wheat).
To make those who use our products feel the fascination of “Color” hiding in blue by indigo, we’d like to keep making products with simplicity, not more or not less. If our indigo-dyed products can give people with a comfortable and peaceful time in their life, we’re so happy.
The color of Ai is deep, free and ambiguous….. Indigo blue may lead you to a “Blue” world connected with both the sea and the sky.
