Author: Gloria Gonick

Publisher: Craft and Folk Art Museum, Los Angeles 1995

Softcover: 48 pages, 96 entries, 15 of which are illustrated with colour images and supplemental black-and-white images.

Description: A museum exhibition catalogue for the exhibit by the same name at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, Los angeles organized by the Okinawa prefectural Museum held Nov. 11, 1995 - January 14, 1996. Okinawa was once the ancient kingdom of Ryukyu, a center of economic and cultural exchange with China, Korea, Japan, and other Southeast Asia countries, which developed a culture that was unique and different from that of mainland Japan. This is especially true for Okinawan dyeing and weaving. The best known example of which is bingata cloth, which is characterized by brilliant colors and a variety of patterns that preserve the vestiges of a glorious royal culture. Okinawans also perfected weaving techniques especially for banana (basho) and other bast fibers. The exquisite kimonos presented here are examples of the finest Okinawan weaving and dyeing.
