Tatsu Miki, Indigo Dye Artisan


Tatsu Miki’s first encounter with the indigo dye was in Tokushima Prefecture (Shikoku region), the birth place of Japanese indigo. Fascinated with the mysterious brilliant blue hue that the dye takes on when exposed to air, this graduate in international affairs at Columbia University decided to create the dye himself in Tokyo. Tatz, as the artisan prefers to be called, adapts the traditional dye-fermentation process using sakè. Tatz’s covetable hand dyed woven silkscarves are available in a wide variation of indigo hues.
