Sukomo Leather from Japan makes the most beautiful indigo dyed leather. Sukumo leather receives it’s color in a natural dyeing process that is performed completely in Japan. Following a 600 year old tradition, the dye used in the process is made by fermenting indigo leaves in Tokushima prefecture, Japan. With the dye the leather is dyed in the historical city of Kyoto. Watch in the film every step from the magical indigo process, very nice shots of this authentic craftsmanship!
