Kamakura is a city with abundant nature surrounded by the sea and mountains, as well as over 100 historic temples and shrines. In the early days of summer, Kamakura is especially famous for its picturesque image of hydrangeas blossoming in these temples and shrines. But after they bloom, their blossoms scatter and get discarded. We wanted to create a shirt that used extracted pigment from these beautiful hydrangeas to dye the cotton. The warm natural fibers give a gentle, non-artificial look.
This shirt is packed with "local", "natural", and "ecology" that can only be done here at Kamakura Shirts. We made these shirts carefully overtime in order to minimize the amount of water, dyes, and chemicals used.
