Studio D'Artisan - "Amami Dorozome" Crewneck Sweatshirt - Dark Brown
The mud dye is back!! It seems that you guys loved the last round of mud-dyed garments as much as we did. That is what "Amami Dorozome" is, the art of dyeing garments with a combination of mud and vegetable oil to create this gorgeous palette of colors. It really doesn't get more earth-tone than this. We're so lucky the artisans on the island of Amami-Oshima are still producing this long-standing tradition. They've chosen a piece that everyone can easily jump on in the form of this sinker weave sweater. This is another traditional and very hard-to-manage version of knitting. The machines all have their own personalities and have to be coddled to get the fabric just right. What results is some of the best knitting in the world filled with tons of character.
