zokin is a traditional Japanese dust rag which is hand stitched using re-purporsed cloth.  Zokin were often made in groups, so very often you will find batches of similar types coming from one home.

This zokin is stitched from about three layers of cotton.  The cloth used to make this zokin is quite worn and is heavily used--it is sashiko stitched in a loose grid pattern. What makes this zokin a bit curious is the addition of the looped tab to the proper, left hand corner of the piece, this is a charming addition.

It is a good looking old traditional dust rag which certainly can be used in the home as an accessory.
