What you can buy at Gallery haraiso

We offer a wide range of crafts by modern Okinawan artists, such as lacquerware.

YACHIMUN POTTERY

The pottery made in Okinawa is called “Yachimun” in the Okinawan language. Yachimun in Okinawa has a long history, said to be about 6,600 years old. Over the years, the pottery that has blended into the lives of the people of Okinawa has been handed down and still fascinates many people. From the Meiji period to the early Showa period, Muneyoshi Yanagi and Shoji Hamada, who were leading figures in the Mingei movement, visited Okinawa and discovered the charm of Yachimun. He thoroughly taught the technique to Jiro Kinjo, who was later known as a Living National Treasure, and Yachimun was established in folk art.For those who want to learn about the history of Yachimun, we recommend going to the Tsuboya Pottery Museum in Naha City, Okinawa Prefecture. By knowing the trajectory that Yachimun has followed, the goodness of Yachimun should deepen. At Gallery Haraiso, there are traditional wares called ‘Yachimun’, which are painted with a brush, as well as wares for adults who prefer a simple life using techniques called kohiki, inlaying, and yakijime. We also have original and unique tableware recommended for those who like “kawaii!” from small children to adults. We offer a wide variety of items such as hot water cups, mugs, coffee cups, soba cups, small bowls, small plates, platters, flower vases, teapots, rice bowls, soba makai, cereal bowls, and salad bowls. There are also unique shisa that can be used not only as ornaments but also as incense burners.

RYUKYU BINGATA

Bingata dyeing is known as a representative traditional craft of Okinawa. During the Ryukyu Dynasty, it is said that the clothes of the royal family and the samurai were dyed. Bingata, which has been in danger of survival many times over its long history, lost many patterns and tools during the war. However, after the war, thanks to the efforts of the Shiroma family, who had been engaged in Bingata dyeing since the dynasty, Bingata began to revive. Many of the current bingata designs are from the Edo period, and most of the designs are based on Chinese auspicious patterns. I think of a design, carve a mold with a sword, put glue on it, and then dye it with pigments or indigo. The works range from expensive items such as kimono fabrics, obis, and picture frames to affordable items such as coasters, card cases, and hair ornaments. All Bingata sold at Gallery Haraiso are hand-dyed. We have coasters, book covers, greeting cards dyed on shell ginger paper, tapestries, framed pictures, panels, and other works that will brighten up your living room.

RYUKYU INDIGO HAND WEAVING

At Gallery Haraiso, we offer works woven by the Ryukyu Aiori workshop “Karansha”, which trained on Kohama Island, using plant-dyed threads such as Ryukyu indigo and Fukugi grown in Yanbaru. We welcome you with a wide variety of items such as tapestries, noren, cushion covers, table centerpieces, bags, wallets, luncheon mats, stoles, etc., where you can enjoy the beautiful gradation of the deep indigo of Ryukyu.

RYUKYU TINWARE

Okinawa once had a tin craft culture that lasted for over 300 years. During the Ryukyu dynasty, people of high rank used it as a sake vessel, but it died out about 100 years ago when there was no successor. At Gallery Haraiso, we are dealing with the works of the workshop “Kinzaiku Matsu”, which has revived the traditional craft “Ryukyu tinware” that has been discontinued. Artifacts of gold craftsmanship that give you a sense of the restoration of tradition and the essence of Okinawa serve as a bridge between the good old days and the present, and we propose them as an old and new lifestyle. Long plates, vase, sake cups, chopsticks, etc

RYUKYU LACQUER AND WOODWORK

Woodwork products made from Okinawa-grown timber such as Ryukyu pine, itajii, holton, camphor, and scarlet cherry. Taking advantage of the beautiful grain of the wood, the finish is gentle on lacquer, beeswax, and glass paint. The warmth of wooden bowls is a blessing that makes the busy dining table feel a little warmer. We have a lineup that is useful for living scenes, such as coffee measuring spoons and mugs that can be used for coffee time, wall clocks that mark the time in the living room, and pendant lighting.

RYUKYU GRASS HAND KNITTING WORK

At Gallery haraiso, we are dealing with the works of “SYUMIDOKA,” which makes folk tools using native Okinawan plants such as Kuba, shell ginger, and rice straw. Traditional Okinawan folk tools have been designed to suit modern lifestyles, and we offer baskets, trivets, lucky charm decorations, and other items that will make your living room look stylish with natural motifs. It’s strange that just putting bread and fruit in a basket made of Kuba will create a stylish adult space. Carefully woven one by one, the works that can never be mass-produced will give you the warmth of handwork in your daily life.
