Lined costume in BINGATA dyeing.
This is a winter lined costume for women. It is called WATANSU, and it was worn over DUJIN and KAKAN. Different BINGATA stencils were used for dyeing outer material and lining. A technique called OBOROGATA (using 2 stencils and dye on sky blue colored material) was used to dye the outer material. It features connected running patterns of lozenge-shape, Japanese apricots, maple leaves, pine trees and birds along with hand-drawn lines in Indian ink. This pink-colored lining has maple trees and little flowers patterns.
