Aitetsu Iro - During the Edo Period, subdued colors became popular as they were considered “iki,” which is a Japanese aesthetic concept that can be defined roughly as chic or stylish. The unobtrusive greenish blue color is produced by applying a dark red iron color over dark blue indigo. Brown and gray colors were popular in the Edo Period, but indigo was also widely appreciated as a typical Edo color. Hence, Aitetsu Iro color that combines both indigo and iron color was particularly preferred for its unique unobtrusive beauty.

Budou Nezu - The dull reddish-purple color produced by adding a grayish tone over wine red color (budou) enjoyed popularity from the mid-Edo to early Showa Period. The gray color (nezumi) gives a calm and elegant aura, which became known as “aristocratic gray” for its delicate hue. It was often used as the base color of a kimono depicted in Ukiyo-e (woodblock) prints and appreciated by many. The wine red color was also called “ebi” in ancient times, so the color is also known as “ebi-nezu.”
