A Hemp Stitched Layered Zokin: Hand Made Dust Rag
mid twentieth century
10" x 13", 25.5 cm x 33 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dust rags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a very handsome zokin which is sewn from recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully sashiko stitched with thick hemp thread--a desirable detail when collecting antique and vintage zokin.
