Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) in Onna Village collaborated with the T-shirt brand HabuBox to create a capsule collection of kariyushi wear. A photoshoot was held on campus on July 7. The exclusive designs are based on the OIST logo, which features a shisa dog motif and the village flower, yuna (Hibiscus tiliaceus).

The shirt utilizes natural materials such as linen. The designs are hand-printed by craftsmen, giving it a character not achieved by mass-production.
At the on-campus photoshoot, OIST President Dr. Peter Gruss said, “Kariyushi shirts signify the wearer’s membership to Okinawa; I hope to share the OIST vision with the people of Okinawa with this kariyushi collection.”
The shirts are available in red, black and navy, priced at 9,460 yen each (tax included).
