Blueberry is a color dyed using blueberries after they have been squeezed to make juice. It features the characteristic deep blue color of quality blueberries grown on the outskirts of Karuizawa. Oolong is a color dyed using the dregs of carefully selected oolong tea. It features the unique brown color of oolong tea.

During the process of making food, there are food material leftovers - "nokori" in Japanese. "Nokori-zome" is a dyeing method made using this "nokori". It features the characteristic soft natural texture of food.
KURAKIN series items are all "nokori-zome" dyed. They are dyed using the parts of food that we do not out eat, the "nokori". They have gentle, warm colors that blend well into a Japanese-style life. This soft color is made with the thought that it will be a suitable color for a lifestyle fabric accessory, and so all KURAKIN items are "nokori-zome" dyed.

[Nokori-Zome Color]
Nokori-zome items are available in 11 colors. Each manufactured item inherits what is used to dye it - the "nokori" that becomes the dye ingredient.
Due to the natural materials/ingredients, the color may differ slightly due to the season and time of year.
