Doumaki: Royal Crest of the Ryukyu Kingdom
Doumaki featuring Roton and Hanori weaving techniques.
Roton weaving is one of the seven Shuri-ori techniques. Figured textile weaving techniques were introduced from China around the 15th century, and adapted into unique Okinawan fabrics and designs.
Hanaori are designs originating in Yomitan Village, and are characterised by a collection of small points expressing a pattern. Yomitan Hanaori was once designated as cloth for the royal capital, and only the nobles of Shuri and Yomitan were allowed to wear it.
Please note that the doumaki are made one by one by the craftmakers of Shiyon, and there may be slight variations from the colors in the photo.
top to bottom: yellow roton, blue roton, pink hanaori, blue hanori, yellow hanori.
Along with the design choice for your doumaki, please specify a color for the string used to tie the ends of the doumaki.
