The History of Sashiko

Sashiko originated about 400 years ago and was a way of making clothes warmers and also preserving them. By putting two or more layers of cloth together and sewing with a running stitch, it creates small pockets of air in the clothing, which trap warmth. Beautiful, geometric patterns were stitched in undyed thread to create the classic 'cream on blue' look which we associate with sashiko today. But as well as being beautiful, this was also very practical as women would often stitch sashiko on dark evenings and the contrast meant they could see what they were doing! Dense stitching helped preserve the fabric for generations to come, as well as providing a means of repairing it with patches.
