This beautiful cushion cover is the result of a collaboration between artist Toshiyuki Fukuda and sashiko embroidery artisan Kenichi Ohazama. Using traditional sashiko embroidery with near-mathematical precision, each cover features geometric patterns that combine 21st-century graphics with Japanese folk art motifs. Each Sashiko Cushion Cover is individually cut from a larger 100% cotton textile, making each pattern slightly different from the others.

Please note: This item is a cushion cover; cushions are not included. A 20" x 20" cushion or pillow is recommended.

About Sashiko Embroidery
Sashiko, which translates to “little stabs” in Japanese, is a hand-sewing technique that originated in ancient Japan. Sashiko stitches were traditionally used to decorate and repair homespun peasant clothes in times where resources were scarce. Using geometric patterns with common motifs like waves, mountains, bamboos, or overlapping diamonds, sashiko combined decoration with reparation. Its spellbinding beauty asks: why just mend and make do when you can mend and make better?
