shidady, this textile is related to the holy things.
The woman gives it to the man as a lucky charm.
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.
