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. Plum is a color dyed using Kishu Nanko plums after they have been used to make plum wine. It features the characteristic refreshing color of plum.

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.
