Madder Red (Akane-iro)
Madder red is a dark red dye made from the madder plant of the genus Rubia. It is used in Japanese to describe the "madder red sky" of twilight.
These Madder dyes were used throughout the world in ancient times; they are one of the oldest plant dyes used by humans. The western madder grown along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea is said to have been used as the dye for the red hats worn by the Turkish people in ancient times.
The solidness of Japanese madder is high, and the color does not fade easily, so it was used in the threads that bound ancient armor and helmets.
