For much of its history, Okinawa, Japan was known as the Ryûkyû Islands. These islands had an independent political and artistic culture from Japan. This included fine textiles of a unique nature. The most famous of these was Bingata, a textile decorated through a labor-intensive stenciling process. We will explore the textiles of these islands as well as their culture and history.

Allie Arnell is a longtime member of the Asian Arts Council and a docent for The San Diego Museum of Art.
