Costume in BINGATA dyeing.


This is a BINGATA-dyed costume with bush clover, plum blossom, chrysanthemum and mist patterns on blue background, and it was dyed by using RYOMENZOME (two-sided dyeing). The flower branches hang down among clear YOKOGASURI (weft ikat), and highlighted red, yellow, and green colors of flowers show up nicely on the blue background. SHIPPOTSUNAGI (interlocking circles pattern) with 4 different circles are depicted on the mist patterns, and it adds the lily gorgeousness to the costume.
