Kapital | Kakishibu Cisco Jeans

Kakishibu is a dye which is called persimmon tannin. Known for it’s repulsive odor but brilliant color it is made from non-sweet persimmon juice. The dye is applied and then placed in direct sunlight which will darken the color.  It takes over 7 dips and tans to get a nice dark brown so it’s a time-consuming process. 

 

This is the kakishibu Cisco. Chain-stitching through the waist band, main seams, and hem. Copper rivets, donut buttons.
