The DARUMA thread is dyed in a SUKUMO indigo vat in Tokushima prefecture, renowned for indigo leaf farming. The prefecture is also known for its tradition of composting indigo leaves into SUKUMO. The indigo vat, which we commonly call  "The Hell Vat," is fermented only with four elements: SUKUMO, ash lye, calcium hydroxide, and wheat bran; therefore, purely organic. The thread is dyed in the 100% natural vat hence it must be treated properly. After a series of meticulous treatments, it is finally reborn to shine with deep, luminous "Japan Blue", and can immediately be washed with other garments.
