Small work in daily life Sashiko accessories and mending/ Japanese embroidery Clothing Boro BOOK


Sashiko was born in the snow country as a wisdom of life to protect herself from the cold.
After spending about 10 years in Yamagata after going on to university, the author who met Sashiko proposed about 30 sashiko small items, repair and remake works as handicrafts rooted in life.
In addition to introducing the three types of sashiko techniques and repair methods in detail with process photos, a part of the sashiko sample that the author has made so far will be published as a collection of designs.

This is the first author book by Saki Iizuka, who opened a workshop “Kaerutope” in the mountains of Gunma Prefecture with her family and conducts sashiko classes and policy activities.
It also introduces how to enjoy sashiko in daily life and atelier, so it is a fun book just to watch.
Rather than just making things to wear, make what you need for your life with your own hands.
We will also introduce the handiwork of the author who loves cloth and uses it for a long time and how she lives.
