Kakishibu is a natural dye made from juicing unripe persimmons. The creation of the dye and the dying of fabrics with kakishibu is a traditional Japanese craft. The dye prevents bacteria growth and also works to harden whatever material it is applied to. Kakishibu can make natural fibers, such as cloth, washi (Japanese style paper) and wood, more water resistant.
