An Original Bingata Method of Hand Dyeing
Katachiki is what the bingata method of dyeing used to be called, and it means “to apply a pattern”. Two sisters run the shop, with the older sister handing the dyeing and the younger sister handling the designing and sewing. They plan, dye, create patterns, and sew in their workshop using traditional techniques and materials as is, recreating ancient Ryukyu bingata designs, scenes of Okinawa, and nature through patterns. Hand-dyed bingata has a gentle texture, and many of their fashionable items can be worn both professionally or casually.
