Reigning Champ Kyoto Black

Reigning Champ presents Kyoto Black, a capsule collection of their signature midweight terry pieces in a deep black finish. The company sought the help of of a dye house in Mibu, Kyoto, Japan, who specializes in a black dye process. The dye house spent over a century to perfect the process, a technique gained over years of dyeing traditional kimonos and Japanese formal wear. The tradition is carried on to this day and in 1996, the dye house created their kurozome kakumei technique, which uses an eco-friendly dye compound that includes madder, indigo, tea leaves, and bark to achieve its inky black hue.
