  4. Hand wash or Laundry okay? I would like the colours to be same natural and pure for good after buying to few years of washing. (My trip to Japan will also be giving respect by buying traditional items from such traditional shops)

  5. Wait he also sells he dyed fabric? I'm sure it's not cheap but I'm curious what the store is called o:

  6. I used to have a passion for natural things, but then my mom removed the cushions from the couches when.she left me alone 🙁
