Bingata Workshop by Hanzakibingata

What is Okinawa Bingata(沖縄紅型)

It is a traditional dyed craft in Okinawa which started around 14~15th century. It is combining the techniques of stencil dyeing from China and the hand dyeing skills of Kyoto Yuzen. Bingata’s vibrant and distinct colors are created by pigments and plant-based dyes.


In Japanese kanji, Bingata is ”紅型”.

“紅(bin)” means all colors (usually, this kanji means red, though)


“型(gata)” means patterns.
