Sashiko Starter kit
Sashiko is a Japanese sewing method and the word means ‘little stab’ or is a running stitch. This craft led to creating a beautiful designs for all home necessities, clothing, and home decor. A simple straight stitch, which when added to several layers of loosely woven fabric not only give a decorative style but also strength and warmth to the garment.. It was known for repairing or patching up clothes, as fabric where expensive and not easier accessible as it is nowadays. Also adding a pattern added interest to otherwise dull clothing.
The modern Sashiko designs which have now been rejuvenated, the interest of using traditional Japanese designs worked onto indigo-dyed fabric with white contrast running stitch has taken off. Adding a luxury finish to quilting, clothing, home furnishings like cushions and many craft projects.
