Bingata (紅型) is a method of dyeing cloth born in Okinawa. Currently, a collection of those beautiful bingata works is being exhibited at the George Washington University Museum in Washington DC, the United States until January 30th, 2017.
If you were interested in this Okinawa’s traditional art and happened to be around Washinton DC, it would be worth visiting the museum. For more detail, check out the university museum’s website HERE.
The photos here are examples of bingata clothes worn by Okinawan traditional dancers during the Juri Uma (ジュリ馬) Festival in Naha.
