Here, we will be introducing the “MIZUTAMA” silk cashmere stole fromHirose Dyeworks, a company that carries on the traditional Japanese hand-dyeing technique of Edo Komon. With its striking combination of intricate patterns characteristic of Edo Komon and bold designs, this stole can be incorporated casually into your wardrobe as a fashion item.
These soft stoles, made from a special fabric (50% silk, 50% cashmere) different from the usual kimono fabric used for dyeing, are dyed with Edo Komon patterns by a stencil dyer using stencils carefully crafted by a stencil maker. Edo Komon has a long history starting with its use in armor and going from being used in samurai costume during the Edo period (1600 – 1868) to being used in kimonos. This scarf, featuring a contemporary design of bold polka dots laid over an intricate Edo Komon pattern created by traditional Japanese techniques, was designed by Yuichi Hirose, the fourth-generation owner of Hirose Dyeworks.
This is an extremely popular item in the stole brand “comment?” launched in 2011. This refined stole features a texture that feels good on the skin and a design that adds spice to modern life. Its large size lets you wrap it around your neck, letting you decorate your neck with the pattern of a haori (a formal Japanese coat). Other patterns and colors are available at the online shop. Experience for yourself a style that could never be created through mass production.
