The Link Between Japanese Samurai and Real Indigo

Real indigo-dyed clothing is not like the blue you know. Richer than the chemical blues used on most fabrics today, real indigo dye comes from a plant and has a surprising range of qualities: on fabric it is antibacterial, flame resistant and repels odor and dirt. With roots in Japanese culture dating back to the 1600s, indigo-dyed fabrics were worn under the armor of samurais to help keep bacteria from wounds. Today, five farmers keep the tradition of growing indigo alive in Tokushima, Japan.

The World’s Rarest Pasta Is Made Entirely by Hand
 
01:52
For more than 300 years, the world’s rarest pasta recipe and its intricate shaping technique have been passed down by generations of women in one Sardinian family. Today there are only a few women on the planet, including Paola Abraini, who know how to make “su filindeu.” The thread-like pasta is made exclusively by hand, requiring equal parts patience and craft to pull and fold the semolina dough into impossibly small, precise strands. Making the pasta is so tricky—and guarded— that for the past 200 years, the dish has only been served in a small town in Sardinia. This story was inspired by Genesis.

Cooking With Poison in Japan
 
03:56
The native people of Amami Ōshima, a remote Japanese island, harvest and eat cycad—a plant that in its rare form can be deadly because it’s packed with poison. Over the years, the islanders have developed a way to remove the toxins and now use the cycad plant to make everything from noodles to mochi. But why do they bother going through the process at all? During U.S. occupation of Japan after World War II, the people of Amami had no access to the mainland and were struck by famine as resources dwindled. The only staple they had on the island was the cycad—so, out of necessity, they had to discover ways of removing the poison to make the plant safe for consumption. Today, the practice of cooking with cycad lives on as a treasured tradition—a way for the people of Amami to never forget their history and honor the ancestors that came before them.
