Minsa Kogei Kan

Area

For many centuries, the women of Yaeyama have woven Minsa textiles for their beloved prospective husbands as an engagement gift, for its distinct patterning signified “yours forever more”. Today that same technique is being used to produce bags, neckties, interior accessories and other items, which are all displayed and sold here. The workshop on the first floor shows the process of Minsa making, and on the second floor stores that display various documents on and exhibits of dyeing and weaving. A hands-on weaving machine trial program is also available.
