Pigments play an important role in Japanese dyeing techniques, originating in the highly refined techniques of Okinawan bingata. Okinawa, as well as Japan, is fortunate in having a very broad range of colors available in their natural mineral deposits.
Pigments are not limited to minerals. A great many are lakes – color precipitated out of both plant and animal-based dye sources.
The set contains a total of ten colors, both minerals and lakes. For more detailed information about the pigments included, as well as how to use them, please click here.
