The last place I want any of my loopwheeled garments is in the mud. But, if Studio D’artisan is dyeing them with mud before I buy ’em? Well, then I’m chill. And that’s exactly what they’re doing with their Amani Dorozome Loopwheeled Pullover Hoodies.
Just one of the pieces from the ‘Amani Dorozome’ collection, these hoodies have been dyed on the Japanese island of Amami Ōshima, using a traditional mud-dyeing technique called ‘Dorozome.’ This technique mixes the iron-rich soils of the Amami region with vegetable juice, to produce a long-lasting dye that yields irregular tones and textures when applied to a garment.
By utilizing this technique, Studio D’Artisan achieved two earthy colorways—rust, and mud. Constructed from heavyweight loopwheeled cotton, these slim-fitting hoodies feature two hand-warmer pockets on lower torso, adjustable drawstrings at the hood, and chunky ribbed cuffs.
Both colorways are Available at Blue Owl Workshop, priced at $345.
