An Explanation for Botanical materials (Herbs / Tree / Vegetable) and Colors.





Logwood give us various blue color. It requires dyeing with another herb before dyeing with actual Logwood. #009 is the one with bright blue, left one on the photo. We are working on improvement for the one on right – dark blue. Because of extra step, the price is $1.00 higher than other regular herb dye thread.


Lac Dye


It is popular color in our selection. On the photo, #010 is on the left side / light purple color. On the photo, #011 is on the right side / purple-ish beige color.


TriHerb – Three Kinds of Herbs.


We tried to create new color – it resulted in interesting beige color. We dye #012 with 3 steps. “Baikal skullcap”→”Tangara”→”Western Madder”


Western Madder 


Western Madder is also popular color. It gives us natural beautiful pink, like Sakura. By using different catalysts in different timing, Western Madder gave us 4 different color.
