A Hemp Stitched Zokin: Traditional Dust Rag
mid twentieth century
9" x 12 3/4", 23 cm x 32.5 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 undyed recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully sashiko stitched with thick hemp thread--a desirable detail when collecting antique and vintage zokin.
