INDIGO-DYED BASHOFU TEXTILE
Woven from the fibers of banana tree as 'Basho-fu' textile of Ryulyu (Okinawa) and Amami Islands, but designed by extremely rare stencil dyeing with natural blue indigo plant (as the brownish pattern is original surface).
Originally, a fragment of the folk everyday wear woven with thicker thread than the delicate high-end were's for the use of royal families.
Again, a very scarce heritage of Ryukyu, by even considering of lack of the large number of usual Basho-fu of today after the Pacific War.
