VISVIM : VALDEZ COAT (WOOL PILE)

A true masterpiece from the visvim's FW17 "Dissertation on Contrary Warriors". Best ever N3-B Jacket seen. This jacket is naturally overdyed in mud using a slow, 1,300 year old technique from Amami Oshima region that is typically used to produce the unique black color of the traditional Japanese silk garment, Oshima Tsumugi. A flowering plant known in Japan as sharinbai (Rhaphiolepis umbellata) is boiled down in a large vat for two days in order to create a liquid extract. A piece of fabric is then dipped repeatedly in this extract, and afterwards immersed in mud. This causes a chemical reaction between the acid pigment in the sharinbai extract and the iron in the mud, which gives birth to a deep, uniquely lustrous dye.
