Awagami Handmade and Dyed Notebooks Indigo Collection





Awagami's home of Tokushima is the birthplace of Japanese organic Indigo where farmers have been cultivating it for centuries. The humble beauty of Indigo was revived during the 1965 Japanese folk-crafts or "Mingei" movement that also led to a new international appreciation for this natural hue.

Available in Danzome (wave) style or Bokashi (crinkled) style.

Danzome (wave) style, the hand dyed wave appearance of the book covers represents the varying tones of blue seen in a single ocean wave.

Bokashi - the Indigo Bokashi (crinkled) appearance of the book covers will vary slightly from book to book as a result of being individually hand-dyed .

Danzome (wave style) and Bokashi (crinkled style) are available in small 92x122mm or large 122x183mm. The Orihon (accordion-fold) style book features covers finished with Indigo dyed 30gsm Japanese "lampshade" paper and contains 40 pages of 81gsm Hosho paper suitable for all drawing and writing media.
