Ryukyu Bingata, a type of traditional dyeing known to Okinawa, flourished during the reign of the Ryukyu Dynasty, and despite the fall of the kingdom, wars and various difficulties, was preserved and passed on by our predecessors. I strive to keep in mind the skills of this craft, while embracing and expressing the feelings I have, as one who lives in the present. It is my wish that through this event, I will be able to make a small contribution to the development and dissemination of Ryukyu Bingata and its appeal.
