At SingleThread we are proud to have the opportunity to work with many highly skilled artisans around the world who embody a shared commitment to craftsmanship and preserving tradition.
Katina and Ayuchi-san, SingleThread's Creative Director, have a shared love of indigo-dyeing and were thrilled to discover BUAISOU in 2017.
BUAISOU, was established in Kamiita-cho, Tokushima Prefecture of Japan in 2015, to "thrive in the hometown of indigo dye."
What makes BUAISOU unique is that all processes, which were traditionally divided into separate specializations, are carried out within BUAISOU itself; from cultivating the raw indigo, fermenting the indigo leaves (Sukumo), dyeing, designing, through to production.
Recently, we had the opportunity to collaborate with BUAISOU on two custom tapestries, created for the opening of SingleThread's Farm Store.
