Gorgeous but I fear too small for me (size 2).

Check out the underarm seams and seams on the back, stunning.

That is Boro, and it's beautiful. Pieces like that go for hundreds-thousands although you can pick up the fabric in japan and make one of those yourself. They're usually used as futon covers and stuff.

I wish hunnish's joke wasn't true, but I already have a hoard of boro...

I haven't dealt with Y auctions, but those KAPITAL jeans are really amazing. They have some which they coat in kakishibu too (something I've been using for my own collection in places) which are really cool.

The fermented juice of green persimmons (Diospyros kaki). The tannin in the juice provides wet strength when applied to paper or threads. It has a characteristic red-brown color that darkens with age and oxidation.


i'm a big fan of the green-blue colour some kapital jeans have

I don't know that model, but if I had to guess I'd say it had a green hue because it was dyed with natural indigo. Natural indigo can give a 'green cast' or a 'red cast' depending on the method used, and it's a matter of some taste.

Kakishibu is a coating/dye made of unripe persimmon, yeah. "Wet strength" must mean water resistant, because that's what it is, and it's pretty amazing stuff. The problem with it is that it has a really odd odour, although I've found it dissipates over time.

what impurity what make it green cast? excess copper? i feel like the indigo would oxidize to blue either way unless something were occupying it but i am not a chemist so i can't guess
