Sashiko - Japanese Traditional Embroidery Fabric
In the Edo period (1615-1868), the Sashiko embroidery technic was known to reinforce points of wear.
It was also used to repair/strengthen the worn clothing areas with patches and keeping the wearer warm.
It has a tough texture and was stitched mainly on fireman clothing.
Today, we have improved ‘Sashiko’ as the art of Japanese ancient embroidery to form a more modern wearing.
The weight is slightly lighter and softer compared to how it was in the past to suit daily wearing.
