Organic dyeing

This film presents the colors prevalent in the everyday life of a master dye craftsman.

Yoshioka Sachio is the next family heir in a long line of master dye craftsmen continuing back to the Edo period of Kyoto, Japan. 1950’s Japan had little regard for the environment which caused much frustration with the then college-aged Yoshioka.
Yoshioka’s dream of continuing the traditional ways of dye making may in fact be one of the most cutting edge schools of thought in the modern world. In his old beat up factory, he slowly but surely creates work after work of dazzling beauty. Let this film serve as a doorway into his world.
