“This deep black colour is produced by a repetitive process of over-dyeing (dye layering) the garment, dyeing multiple times cycling between aizome (natural, Japanese indigo plant dye) and Dorozome (mud-dye). Indigo gives a light shade of blue which progressively becomes a dark blue/purple the longer the garment is dyed and a with the additional dye cycles and layering. Mud dye adds layers of brown. Eventually an inky black is obtainable once this process and re-dye has occurred by layering blue, brown, blue brown, repetitively until a deep colour is achieved. Often these dye cycles require repetition of over 100 times dyeing
