Sashiko Repair Kit
Sashiko (translated as 'little stabs') mending is the Japanese art of repairing fabrics by sewing patterns onto them. Its precise origins remain a mystery, but by the 1800s the technique was widespread throughout Japan for strengthening and decorating clothes.
The embroidery was seen on firefighters uniforms in Japan for many years and is now seen on catwalks globally.
The kit, made by OurHands, includes a plain cotton tote bag ready for embellishment using the Sashiko method. Sustainable and customisable, Sashiko is ideal for fashion statements, personalised gifts, and for breathing new life into clothing that would otherwise be thrown away.
- Includes: Instruction book, Sashiko needle, Sewing pins, Thread, Chalk, Blank tote bag, 2 small squares of white cotton fabric, 2 small squares of indigo cotton fabric, 2 small squares of indigo denim fabric, 1 large square of indigo denim fabric
