    visvim presents a new video, giving a behind the scenes look at the indigo dyeing process in Tokushima, done by one of the few masters of the craft, left today. Sokuma is the raw material used for indigo and it is used in a solution without any chemicals, a method that has almost died out today and is completely different from a synthetic indigo pigment.

    The beauty of natural indigo is the outcoming patterns. A naturally dyed garment will always have traces of irregularity, something that visvim considers the real beauty of the process. Check out the video here above!
