A lovely little introduction to Sashiko Stitching.  These kits contain 100% cotton navy fabric printed with a stitch design, needle, sashiko thread and instructions in English to make up a cushion (33cm x 33cm).  

Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery style from the Edo period (1615 – 1868). It was mostly used by farming and fishing families to make stronger more practical workwear. A worn-out piece was stitched with layers of old cloth, producing a sturdy garment passed down through generations.

In these more waste-conscious times, sashiko is becoming more popular, embodying the quintessential culture of mottanai, the Japanese Philosophy of not having to waste anything.
