Akikozome is a mud-dyeing technique using lake-bottom soil from Shibayama Lagoon and water sourced from Katayamazu Onsen.
With a pale purple color, this technique was named after the poet Akiko Yosano, who penned the poem: "The wind blows/pale purple waves move/Katayamazu in early spring."
This is a unique dyeing technique developed as a result of hot springs research by Kazue Tazaki, Professor Emeritus at Kanazawa University.
It's easy for even children to take part in every step of the process.
One of the appeals of this technique is that, since the fabric is tie-dyed, each item has a different look.
With a custom pattern and dye, this is the perfect item for a souvenir.
