Costume in BINGATA dyeing.


This is a BINGATA-dyed winter costume for women. The common read patterns were designed throughout the sky blue background, and wild geese patterns with yellow, red and green colors were laid out among the common read patterns. A difficult dyeing technique called RYOMENZOME (two-sided dyeing) was used for this costume, in which a pattern is laid out in the same position on each side of the costume.
