Invitation Letter to Dyers


This is an English translation of the letter that was sent to professional dyers throughout the country who use Awa indigo inviting them to participate in the I am Ai, We are Ai project.  It really gets to the heart of what this project is about. 

The response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We currently have 44 dyers from 19 prefectures throughout Japan who are transferring the indigo born in the soil of Tokushima to cloth for the project.  The group includes many of Japan’s top dyers, and everyone’s involvement is a testament to the importance of Awa indigo in each of their work.
