Bingata is a textile-dyeing technique which symbolizes Ryukyu Kingdom era.
This traditional Bingata textile used to be worn by noble families only.
During the 15th century, where the Ryukyus had been in a trade with China and Southeast Asia, diverse dyeing techniques were introduced to the Ryukyus by the countries.
And in a mean while Ryukyuan people evolved the techniques into their unique Bingata technique under local climate and culture.
Beautifully woven Bingata textiles had crossed overseas as today a great amout of Bingata cloths can be seen in China.
Bingata, that is what has been passed on from an ancient world of the Ryukyus using local plants such as fukugi and hibiscus to extra pigments, and its dyeing method hasn’t been changed even today.
