Sashiko is a handicraft technique that has been handed down in Japan since ancient times.
Sashiko was born out of the wisdom of the Japanese people to reinforce clothes to make them last longer,
and keep them warmer at a time when goods were not plentiful. Sashiko fabric, which is easy to move and
sturdy, was used as uniforms for firefighters during the Edo period when fires were common.
Today, it continues to be loved by all generations not only for its functional elements as clothing, but also for
its design elements like unique looking and texture.
While traditional sashiko fabrics are thick and durable, they are also heavy and stiff.
Therefore, JAPAN BLUE JEANS has developed a light and soft sashiko fabric that is easy to use in
daily life while maintaining the three-dimensional, uneven design that is a characteristic of sashiko.
