After dying with the essence of Techi tree (Yeddo hawthorn) and soaking in the muddy rice field, this process is repeated over and over again until the color stays. During this process, irons in the mud and tannin pigments of Techi tree are gradually combined and the color becomes deeper and more glossy.
The high-density 100% cotton fabric. The unique technique peach-skin processing is applied, which makes the surface supple yet elegant.
A set-up with the pants using the same fabric is recommended.
