Discover the art of Bingata, thanks to Mako Totani and his Tirinto workshop.
She does all the steps, herself, she draws then cut the stencil and coat it with artificial lacquer. Once the stencil has been created, she places it on a fabric or paper support and applies rice glue on it to create the pattern. She makes her own pigments and colors. Finally, she applies the colors using brushes, a soft brush for the first coat then a hard brush for the other colors.
For a wallet, it takes 1 month of work!
Mako Totani learned this art from Okinawa, on site but produced today in Osaka.
