A huge number of conch shells are needed to make the natural dye Kaimurasaki (Tyrian purple). Since the dye is so rare and expensive, it was only allowed to be used in Japan for the ceremonial clothes of emperors and aristocrats, which is why it is considered the “noblest color.” Such clothing was treasured as a sign of authority, and also known by such names as “imperial purple” or “Cleopatra’s purple,” but with the decline of the Eastern Roman Empire production of this dye ceased. Getting a hint from the process of indigo fermentation, Akiyama succeeded in coming up with a unique method to extract a violet pigment from the internal organs (purple glands) of the acacia shellfish that lives in the coastal waters of Japan, thus reviving Kaimurasaki dye.
