Master indigo dye house Buaisou lends a helping hand to The Hill-Side for their recently released Indigo Shibori Collection. Buaisou, in addition to dyeing with indigo, also farms, composts, and ferments the indigo. For shibori, the process is similar to tie dye. Garments are twisted and tied before being put through a resist-dye indigo process.
Using a natural selvedge chambray, the collection includes a pocket square, tie, scarf, and a pullover. Each garment is cut and sewn in Brooklyn, then hand dyed in Tokushima. Of course, no two patterns will be the same, which gives each piece an individuality and charm. You can even see on the El Segundo Shirt, that the natural corozo nut buttons are not uniformly dyed. That might drive other people crazy, but we’re crazy about it.
Ranging from $60-$329, the entire collection is available now at The Hill-Side.
