Ajiro is a quintessentially Japanese weave that involves delicately weaving thin strips of bamboo and was historically used to make baskets. Everyday articles created using this particular type of wickerwork were considered indispensable by those who used them - with the pattern even being regarded as auspicious. Heralded as a weave that will attract happiness and protect everything precious for the user - Studio D'Artisan have created from the ground up their latest "Ajiro Denim" series for 2023.
By combining different weave structures in this particular denim prior to performing a factory wash on the garment, the shrinkage results in a particularly uneven texture giving off a three-dimensional look to the fabric.
Traditionally, Sumi is produced from a combination of pinewood soot, animal glue and perfume. A common misconception is that the final product is a liquid, when in fact the ink is only the result of rubbing a solid ink 'stick' against an inkstone with water. Thus, the original production of ink sticks requires a painstaking process of thoroughly mixing the raw ingredients before kneading and shaping them in wooden molds. The ageing process can take from a few months to several years.
