Create contemporary home wares with a stylish, minimalist look using Japanese sewing technique, sashiko.
Currently a major sewing trend in craft, interiors and fashion, sashiko uses big stitches of thread to form geometric patterns and texture.
This collection includes 8 simple sashiko patterns for home decor: choose from a coaster, cushion, bag, wall hangings, and greetings cards, to try this technique for yourself.
Susan Briscoe is a leading expert in the traditional Japanese sewing technique. She was first introduced to sashiko in the early 1990s while teaching English in northern Japan.
