About

Sashiko to the world.

I was born in the Sashiko family.

Sashiko is a process of repairing and/or strengthening the fabric. The Japanese enjoyed the process to provide the warmer, thicker, and more beautiful cloth to the family. Sashiko used to be a daily chore every household was performing.

In 21st century, we find their spirit and result beautiful. Boro is one of the results of continuous Sashiko. People kept repairing, mending, and repurposing the fabric. They always appreciated the fabric.

My mother and I try to pass this down to the next generation. It shouldn't be kept in our family anymore; I even think this should be somewhat open-source to anyone.

Sashiko to the world.
"Repurpose" and "Upcycle" what we have, what we had.
