A Plaid Zokin: Diagonal Sashiko Stitching
mid twentieth century
8 3/4" x 13 1/2", 22.25 cm x 34.25 cm
Zokin are traditional Japanese dust rags which are almost always made from layered and sashiko stitched scraps of cloth.
This is a good looking zokin which is sewn from plaid cotton cloth which has been sashiko stitched in parallel, diagonal lines, a bit of an unusual pattern for a zokin.
A lovely zokin with a great stitching.
