Abstract :Kasuri is a kind of patterned fabric which was brought to the Japanese mainland from Okinawa. We can see some patterns of Ryukyu Kasuri in Ukiyoe prints dating back to the 19th Century. Ryukyuan Kasuri culture in the southern Okinawan town of Haebaru as well as others has been a common sight since at least 1933. Some tapestries of Ryukyu Kasuri have been exhibited in the Haebaru Town Office since the 1990's. The materials and designs of the costumes of the subtropical Ryukyus allow air to pass through and absorb sunlight; this develops the people's aesthetic sense. Many patterns of Ryukyu Kasuri are based on nature and life. The name of each pattern has its own meaning. Ryukyu Kasuri is often the costume used in Ryukyuan dancing and is also seen in mourning wear. Ryukyu Kasuri can be considered as an ornamental culture deeply connected to life which uses aesthetic qualities born in the subtropical climate of the Ryukyus.
