1.Choose your favorite color

First choose your favorite color of the wrapping cloth and the color of your paint (Paper type dye Happiness Color Mats) Happiness Color Mats that are used here are friendly to the environment and it is a way of dyeing that does not pollute water and air because you do not need fire or water to dye. Depending on the color, the atmosphere of the somemono will completely change. Pale colors are easy to use when it comes to fashion but strong colors can be used as an accent color. You can choose from many colors, so please choose a new one.

2. Sachizome experience

Next you will choose your own design with the motif of flowers and leaves. In Japan is is said that leaves of trees are a charm for longevity and for each design there is a different meaning. Choosing your design while listening to the explanation could be interesting.When your design is fixed, follow the process and dye the material with Happiness Color Mats using the heat of an iron.

3. Finished

If you have completed the dyeing along with the design, you work is done. Sachizome is strong against machine washing and rubbing, so there is no need to worry about loosing the colors. Please use the wrapping cloth, a part of Japanese culture, painted with somemono in many different ways!
