They are currently raising funds to produce PPE gowns through small garment and fashion industry factories in the US. The gowns produced are then in turn being donated to Frontline workers in need of PPE.

Katazome is a Japanese method of dyeing fabrics using a resist paste applied through a stencil. With this type of resist dyeing a rice flour mixture is applied using a brush or a palette knife. Pigment is added by hand-painting, immersion, or both. Where the paste mixture covers and permeates the cloth, dye applied later will not penetrate.
Some of our Katazome masks are printed on Chirimen, a silk or cotton fabric that has a unique feature of soft wrinkles.
