Comment During the 1800s and before, Japanese kaya craftsmen created a green color netting by first dyeing hemp kaya panels with natural, organic yellow dye and then followed up with a second indigo dyeing. This particular kaya now at sale, for some unknown reason, was never dyed with indigo but was made into a kaya mosquito net with its first dyed yellow color.
