Sashiko Embroidered Place Mat
This placemat was created through a collaboration between artist Toshiyuki Fukuda and sashiko embroidery artisan Kenichi Ohazama. Fukuda and Ohazama utilized a wide range of techniques to translate abstract illustrations onto fabric with mathematical precision. The sturdy textile is made from 100% cotton woven into a strong quilted jacquard weave that easily washes away spills. Each Sashiko placemat is individually cut from a larger textile, making each pattern slightly different from the others.
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, with its resulting beauty demanding to know: why just mend and make do when you can mend and make better?
