Studio D’artisan come through yet again with an inspired amalgamation of contemporary style and classic fabric dyeing techniques. This time, the Osaka brand lean on ancient sumi ink recipes to create a “Kusaki-Zome” Western shirt. The dying process imparts a washed, charcoal cast with some amazing character. Sumi ink is traditionally used in Japanese calligraphy. Strictly speaking, it’s not an ink at all, but a molded block of fermented pinewood and perfume. The blocks are often aged for years before they’re put to water to create the ink bath in which the fabric will sit for dyeing. A labour of love that turns out a truly unique shirt.
