Bingata is a textile dyed with a technique created in Okinawa for clothing used by specific classes of Ryukyu society - including royal and shizoku families. The assortment of shapes created using paper patterns combines with unique Ryukyu colors to demonstrate the delightful capabilities of katazome (stencil dyeing). This exhibition presents superb examples of bingata, including some of the finest bingata dress made for the Ryukyu royal family, and also has the first public showing of the Matsuzakaya Collection.
