** The lengthy fermenting process required to produce natural indigo, up to one year, and the low annual output make this a highly coveted dye stuff. This model is woven with cotton yarns which have been hand dyed by legendary craftsmen in the Tokushima prefecture of Japan using natural indigo which was also harvested in Tokushima prefecture . The undyed cotton yarns are dipped by hand into indigo dye vats repeatedly until the indigo has penetrated the core of the yarns. Natural indigo jeans have a reputation for retaining their color and this is why. Most jeans use indigo dyed yarns that are white at the core since they have not fully absorbed the indigo. The top layer of indigo will eventually give way to the white centers with moderate wear and abrasion. Natural indigo models hold their blue longer making them tougher to break but this just adds to their uniqueness.

(please see excerpt from the "Journal of The Society of International Natural Dyeing" for more information on the natural indigo process and its importance in the Tokushima prefecture in Japan)
