Zokin are traditional Japanese dustrags 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, probably about two layers.   There is a deep blue commercially loomed cotton along with a hand loomed, woven pinstripe, blue on white.

Hand stitched and appealing.
