一斤染（いっこんぞめ）は、染料の紅花一斤 で絹一疋 を染めた淡い紅色のことです。平安時代は紅花が高価であったため、濃い紅染は『禁色 』とされ、天皇の許可がない限り着用が禁止されていました。ただ、一斤染のような薄い紅染の場合は、『聴し色 』として身分の低いものの着用が許されており、このことから一斤染の別名を『聴色 』とも呼ばれます。
[Explanation of a color]
The Ikkonzome is a pale red that is dyed with silk gauze 600g of dye. In the Heian period, as the safflower was expensive, the dark red dye was considered as “Kinjiki” and was prohibited from wearing without permission of the Emperor. However, in the case of a thin red dye such as one drop stain, it is permitted to wear something of low status as “Yurushiiro”, and from this, Ikkonzome’s alias is also called “Yurushiiro”.
There is another “Arazome” in the pale red color that is Yurushiiro, but this one was dyed with half of Ikkonzome’s safflowers. Also, “Imayouiro” was also light in color, but it seems to have gradually become darker as it becomes the future generation. By the way, in order to dye a bright reddish red like “Karakurenai”, it is said that 6 kg of safflower is required, and it was an amount that the cloth of one-dot dyeing could be dyed in twenty.
