The Japanese word sashiko means ‘little stabs’ or running stitch. Humble beginnings led to creating home necessities by devising a simple stich to quilt several layers of loosely woven fabric for strength and warmth.
Modern Sashiko designs have now rejuvenated interest by using traditional Japanese designs worked onto indigo-dyed fabric with White contrast running stitch. Adding a luxury finish to quilting, home furnishings and craft projects.
