Shipping is calculated by computer and is not always accurate. When in doubt, feel free to email me a list of the items you would like to order, and I'll get back to you with an accurate amount. Another option is to place the items you'd like in your cart, take a picture of your screen with the order, and email it to me. If you use the web page shipping algorithm and are overcharged, I'll certainly notify you and refund the difference.

When in doubt, please contact me first.


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.
