den Tajima Kishiko hand-dyes her textiles with kakishibu and a variety of mordants including aluminum, titanium and copper. Dyeing with persimmon tannin (kakishibu) dates back to ancient Japan and the technique produces a range of distinct earthy tones from muted oranges to burnished browns. Most of her cloths are left with unfinished edges and are designed to be used freely for a variety of purposes by the purchaser.

Kishiko san compares her passion for dyeing to her fondness for the darkroom work she did while studying photography in college and working as a photo assistant. She sees similarities in both processes, creating shadows and tones in her textiles through changes in temperature, light and duration.

*** This linen gauze cloth has an unfinished edge and may have streaks, patches and spots that result from the dyeing process.
