Product description

The Tulip Crochet Hook Set Wa Bi Etimo Blue presents a beautiful collection of crochet hooks specially designed to celebrate Tulip’s 60th anniversary.

These crochets are characterized by the beauty of the indigo dye Awa-Ai, known as the Blue of Japan. They are hand-dyed with a very special material, which began to be used in the 10th century by aristocrats and samurai.

Awa-Ai is produced in the Tokushima region in the eastern part of Shikoku Island. Thanks to the rich soil and abundant water, the Japanese indigo plant (Persicaria tinctoria) grows in excellent conditions, which provides leaves from which an intense and brilliant blue color is extracted. This dye stands out for its antibacterial properties.

These crochet hooks are created and dyed by hand using a Japanese handicraft technique, they are very special! You will fall in love with their design but you will be surprised as soon as you wear them. they guarantee comfort!

The liquid indigo pigment used is prepared using the natural indigo dyeing technique by fermentation with lye that dates back to the Edo period. This safe and eco-friendly dyeing method makes the most of natural materials while fermenting them. To dye the case that includes the set for organizing Wa Bi crochets and tools, Tulip has chosen murakumo-zome, a crinkled fabric dyeing technique that provides a beautiful indigo pattern that resembles clouds floating in the sky.

The crochets are Etimo, making them ergonomic. They feature comfortable padded handles that fit your hand and aluminum tips that slide perfectly between the threads.
