The “Hinoki” Dyeing Method

The dye used in this process is made using extracts taken from Hinoki cypress trees. This dye is then repeatedly painted onto the fabric, creating vivid colors and a gentle texture. We developed this technique out of a desire to create the calming feel of being within a forest.

We have patented this technique as “Honhinoki” with the Japan Patent Office.

The “Gancha” Dyeing Method

Gancha tea is a type of oolong native to the Wuyi Mountains in China. Our Gancha Dyeing method uses extracts from gancha tea to color the fabric repeatedly, similar to the “Hinoki” method. As with the Hinoki method, this coloring technique is also patented after the plant from which the dye is derived: the “Gancha” Dyeing method.

The gancha extract changes color based on the type of mordant (a substance used to set dyes on fabrics), making each (layer of) coloring distinct.
