Bingata is a dyeing technique developed in Okinawa that applies bright multicolored patterns with paper stencils and a freehand past-resist dyeing method. Bingata-dyed fabrics are characterized by their strong distinctive patterns which developed under the influence of the seafaring trade conducted between China, Southeast Asia, and Japan from the 14th or 15th century.
