Sashiko needlework is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using variations of running stitches.

Sashiko was born in Northern area of Japan, hundreds of years ago.

Simple running stitches were used to reinforce or to mend worn farm clothes, making the darned piece stronger and warmer rather than for decorative purposes.

Overtime, in various areas of Japan, different stitches were used for decorative purposes with motifs from nature and geometric designs.
