Morio Miyagi

MIYAGI’s works are characterized by his bright designs drawing upon the local island nature and they are so alive you can almost feel and smell the fresh winds and fragrances of Okinawa.
His forte includes his new attempts to use bingata* for other items than kimono fabrics, and tube drawing, which is another bingata technique.
*Colorful dyed fabrics indigenous to Okinawa
