If you’re not already familiar with the Japanese technique of dyeing, kakishibu, the Studio D’Artisan Kakishibu (Persimmon Dyed) Flannel Shirt is the perfect introduction – especially if natural dyed and earth tones are your thing. In this application of the technique, cotton yarns are dyed with kakishibu dye from persimmons, and then woven into the classic-looking flannel you see here. You might’ve seen a pair of jeans made from kakishibu instead of indigo featured on our site, well, this is the same idea, but in flannel form.
The Kakishibu Flannel Shirt is a no-frills workshirt style, equipped with two button-closing chest pockets, a buttoning front placket, adjustable cuffs, and all the Dad-style you can dream of. You know, your Dad might appreciate this one as a gift this upcoming Holiday, and you can go ahead and explain to him the venerated art of dyeing with persimmons along with it.
