My favorite color by the far. My indigo is stirred but not shaken.

Ogura-san is asking the right questions, and then getting out of town, away from those "safe" bags of nuclear waste. All the best and success. WEBSITE URL? Come on, JT!

So not only a lovely blue colour but do they glow on the dark as well?

All joking aside that was a sensible and creative move for farmers to take. I can see the emotional appeal of a purely natural approach but in reality as a civilisation we can not just revert back to the medieval as the majority will die and the rest live short, brutish and painful lives. Technology is a necessity if we wish to survive, the problem lies with the failure of our political leadership and corruption.

I wish they had an English site, or even an Etsy store or something, because not only are these the most beautiful textiles and clothes I’ve seen, but how, and by whom, they are made makes them more valuable, in my opinion, than any designer pieces. I would be honored to be able to own some of the items made by these amazing people! They are truly the type of people that should be propped up for all to see by the media industry, instead of the usual garbage that we are told to look to and emulate by the powers that be.
