Unique and vibrant textiles created in Ryukyu (Okinawa), known as bingata, are prized for their variety of colors and lively designs. In a center of trade between East and Southeast Asia, textile producers sourced pigments from many places, combining them with their own aesthetics and techniques. Their tradition will be illustrated with historical garments, contemporary versions, and some of Marshall’s own work.
