A Zokin: Beautifully Symmetrical Sashiko Stitching
mid twentieth century
6 3/4" x 13 1/2", 17 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 handsome zokin which is sewn from recycled cotton cloth which has been beautifully and perfectly symmetrically sashiko stitched in white cotton thread.
The stitching is beautifully executed. Just wonderful.
A very good looking zokin with a lovely composition and good color.
