Okinawa, Japan’s southernmost prefecture is an archipelago of 146 islands stretching between Kyushu and Taiwan whose rich culture has resulted from its topography, and regional influences. As a part of this mix, 'Bashofu' or ‘banana-fibre cloth’, has a distinct local (and national) identity, which has altered over time with the many social, economic and cultural transformations of broader Okinawan (and Japanese) society.
