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 dyed fabric with a contrast running stitch. Adding a luxury finish to quilting, home furnishings and craft projects.
Apply Sashiko over printed pattern. Pattern washes off!
