Ogaki Kaban Accessories – Cotton Canvas Dyed with ‘Kakishibu’

A truly affordable, truly unique line of accessories from Japan’s Ogaki Kaban. Cotton canvas is dyed with a traditional dye, Kakishibu, made from the fermented juice of  unripe persimmons fruit. Resulting in various shades of brown, each item differs from the next with the dye itself  ‘…known for its distinct color as well as its anti-bacterial and water-proofing qualities‘. Bags, wallets, key holders and pouches, this strangely beautiful fabric will take on a new hue when exposed to the sun. Find them all at Hickorees.
