On June 28, the Chibana Hanaui Business Cooperative visited Mayor Sachio Kuwae at the Okinawa City Office and reported on the production of their original Kariyushi shirts. The Cooperative will work with the Chubu Dressmaking Association to prepare a mass production system in an effort to increase the popularity of Chibana Hanaui. Their Kariyushi shirts, which have previously only been produced custom-made, will now be ready-made so the company can produce large quantities.

Kariyushi shirts are currently limited to 30 pieces. The Cooperative will sell kariyushi shirts giving priority to the staff at the City Office. Then, they will start general marketing for the summer when sales time peaks.

Shirt sizes are M, L, LL, for men only. There are five kinds of colors, each with two collars. Shirts are made of hemp fiber. For the Chibana Hanaui shirts a unique design is used for the breast pocket and collar part with a red and white pattern on the dark blue background.

Chief Executive Kobashigawa said, “80 percent of shipment of textile has been outside of Okinawa. I hope to make Chibana Hanaui popular in Okinawa.”
