In our Sashiko Repair Kit you will find everything you need to learn the basics of Sashiko mending, practice your technique, and quickly start working on your own projects. The kit includes a natural cotton tote bag ready to be embellished using the Sashiko method. Sustainable and endlessly customisable, Sashiko is the perfect new hobby for fashion statements, personalised gifts, and giving new life to clothing that would otherwise be thrown away.

Sashiko (“little stabs”) is the Japanese art of repairing fabrics by sewing patterns onto them. Its exact origins are unknown, but by the 19th century, the technique had been adopted throughout Japan as a means to strengthen and decorate clothes. Even the firefighters’ uniforms consisted of a thick cotton jacket with intricate sashiko designs that would help the garment retain more water. Sashiko can now be seen on catwalks and designer clothes across the world.

Though sashiko is traditionally made by stitching white or red thread onto indigo-dyed fabric, the technique can be used on any fabric, in any colour and pattern: whole art pieces have been sewn into garments this way! We hope you have as much fun tailoring your clothes as we had developing this kit.

Included in the kit

Instruction book, Sashiko needle, Sewing pins, Thread, Chalk, Blank tote bag, 2 small squares of white cotton fabric, 2 small squares of indigo cotton fabric, 2 small squares of indigo denim fabric, 1 large square of indigo denim fabric
