与那国から届いた、
優しい色のシダディ。
そのピンクは秘めた想いのよう

太陽の昇る前と、沈んだ後、
空に、海に広がるピンク。
ガジュマルで染めたシダディ
大きくて力強いガジュマルはこんなにも優しい色を生む
海と空と森は隠された色を知っていて
同じピンクに染まる。
愛する人を想いながら織るシダディ。

ありがとう、まりちゃん。

I received the parcel, shidady from Yonaguni island,
This shidady is dyed with the color of sweet pink,
The color of pink is like hidden feelings for someone

Sweet warm color of pink is born from banyan trees
Even though these trees are so big and strong
The sky before sunrise
The fragile color of pink on the diminishing blue
The sky after sunset
The same fleeting brush of color on the deepening blue
The sky, sea and trees know the hidden sweet color of pink
Shidady is woven for the loved one.

merci, Mari
