buaisou : yakusugi bead bracelet


Change your fate with the yakusugi bead bracelet. Handmade using Japanese Cedar from the island of Yakushima, Yakusugi wood is renowned for its resistance to rot and remarkable longevity. BUAISOU embed a little of this luck in every bracelet and say, “Yaku ga sugiru,” meaning with this good luck charm “mischief will pass you by.” Finished with a layer of natural oils, the tree rings in each bead will grow more visible over time, gradually revealing a beautiful indigo patina.

BUAISOU was established in the "hometown of indigo dye,” Kamiita-cho. A once prolific industry in Tokushima prefecture, today there are only a handful of traditional indigo farmers left, four of whom are BUAISOU. From the ground to the street, cultivating the raw indigo and fermenting the leaves (Sukumo), dyeing, designing, and production, BUAISOU undertake every process themselves, merging modern sensibilities with the revival of heritage craft. Characterised by rich hue and colour fastness, the history of Indigo dyeing is as deep and complex as the outcome. Our first outing from BUAISOU is a range of practical yet stunning pieces to brighten your day.
