A Guide to Japanese Tableware
What is Aizome?
Aizome, the traditional Japanese art of indigo dyeing, has extended its reach beyond textiles to include tableware. This centuries-old craft, which utilises natural indigo dye from the leaves of the Japanese indigo plant, Persicaria tinctoria, is renowned for its distinctive blue hues and antibacterial properties.
The meticulous process, encompassing everything from cultivation of the plant to the final dyeing, can take a full year. Aizome's aesthetic appeal and functional qualities, like durability, make it a unique and culturally significant choice for a variety of items, including those used in table settings.
