Product Description

While stocks last: Wa Bi - Tulip's wildly popular Etimo cushion grip crochet hooks now available as an exclusive set in an incredible Japanese indigo blue colour!

This exceptional crochet hook set focuses on the traditional Japanese indigo dyeing technique, known in Japan as aizome. Traditional indigo is a natural blue dye extracted from a plant. In the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, it was not acceptable in Japan for the lower classes to wear bright colors. Silk was also a luxury product, so the lower classes had to rely on cotton fabrics, which were particularly suitable for aizome. This combination had even more benefits: indigo fabrics are known for their anti-bacterial properties. In fact, bad odours develop less easily in fabric dyed with indigo, and the fabric can provide relief to people with eczema. Indigo fabric was also preferred by both samurai, since it could prevent wound infections, and by firefighters because of its fire-retardant effect.

Nowadays, indigo is known as a high-quality artisanal dye, which is not only beautiful, but also very sustainable. Extracting the dye from the plant is a labour-intensive process, and dyeing, especially when it comes to special patterns, is very precise work that requires a lot of knowledge and experience. This makes fabrics dyed with indigo very exclusive. With the Tulip Etimo Blue crochet hook set you have a very special product in your hands, which has been carefully manufactured with the greatest craftsmanship.

The Tulip Etimo cushion grip crochet hooks are very well-known in the handicraft world and rightfully so! The ergonomic handle made with soft and durable elastomer is very comfortable to hold in your hand, while the smooth-polished and perfectly formed aluminium crochet hook makes regular crocheting a lot easier. In short, these Etimo hooks will guarantee you hours of comfortable and pleasant crocheting. The crochet hooks and the case in this Wa Bi set are coloured with Awa-Ai pigment - this indigo dye is also known as 'Japan blue'. This results in a stunning set of entirely blue crochet hooks, packed in a unique, hand-dyed indigo case. The case closes with a beautiful mother-of-pearl toggle button and silk cord, while a pair of the traditional Japanese U-shaped scissors completes this exclusive set. And if that wasn’t enough, the Wa Bi crochet hook set comes in a beautiful storage box made with Japanese Paulownia wood.
