Sumizome is a natural dyeing technique using soot as material. Soot is a mass of impure carbon particles resulting from the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbons. At KUON, we use smoke from burning pine. This dyeing technique requires quite a lot of time and effort, but it enables to express a unique, beautiful look. Also Sumizome has antibacterial function like Aizome.
