Katachiki

Area
Category

Katachiki is a studio/shop located in the Shuri area of Naha City, Okinawa, crafting the Okinawan traditional dyed textile “Ryukyu bingata”. Katachiki is run by two sisters, both of whom call the Shuri area their home. The elder Yumiko is in charge of the dyeing, while the younger Yuko takes on the sewing; their collaborative work results in a complete product. “We want to embody craftsmanship that embraces novelty while emanating tradition”, the two of them say. They keep to this promise and continue to work closely with each other, to craft their own history-rich Ryukyu bingata with a touch of modernity in the mix. Katachiki hosts workshops at irregular intervals, at which Yumiko will take you through the steps of the bingata-dyeing processes. The schedules and contents of these workshops will be updated online, so be sure to check their official website.
