A Beautifully Sashiko Stitched Zokin: Delicate and Intense
mid twentieth century
7" x 10 1/2", 17.75 cm x 26.5 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dustrags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a small-sized and very handsome zokin which is sewn from recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully sashiko stitched: over the entirety of the surface of this cloth is a delicate network of dense sashiko stitching: the stitching is beautifully executed.
A very good looking zokin with a lovely sashiko and good color.
