    • Colour: The one-off Roma is covered in a unique blue tone called Indigo Metal, inspired by traditional, naturally produced indigo. Cool Hunting visited one of the five remaining indigo farms in Tokushima to create the authentic indigo dye, Hon-Ai. This colour can be seen on the car’s exterior and interior (headlining, seat trim inserts, and carpets)
    • Unique material: The seats are made of Sakiori, a unique, upcycled material. The fabric used dates back to the 1700s when silk and cotton were very expensive. Worn-out kimonos were used; they were disassembled and rewoven with new fibers (cotton, silk, and high-tensile nylon), creating a new, warm and comfortable fabric
