Shikawa Co., Ltd.
Dyeing, Processing and Finishing of Fabrics
We have developed a method using “Muroto Deep Sea Water” which is deep sea water that contains many minerals.
By using deep sea water off of Muroto, domestically we have succeeded to create environmentally friendly and high value-added products without damaging fabrics such as jeans. Through a slow process, we create jeans that have that worn-out organic feeling.
We carefully transport natural sea water (Muroto Deep Sea Water) pumped from a depth of 374 meters, 2km offshore southeast of Cape Muroto in Kochi prefecture, and create a worn-out jeans feeling via a slow, “organic” process. WIthout using artificial chlorine and hydrogen bleach, we can change the color as if it had faded by cutting off some molecules of the indigo dye and combining with enriched mineral in the deep sea water.
