Sashiko, one of the traditional Japanese embroidery, is gaining popularity. It’s easy to try because it’s just a series of stitches, and you only need three tools: cloth, thread, and a needle. Recently, the number of colorful sashiko threads has increased, and the younger generation of fans are also increasing. Needless to say, sashiko dish towels are useful in a variety of situations in daily life, and are truly items of “beauty of use,” as they are useful in a variety of situations in daily life.
This book introduces 46 types of traditional sashiko patterns and creative patterns made on dish towels.

Each colorful pattern has a name such as “Hana Tsunagi”, “Ayasashi”, and “Nagare Manji”, and many of them are auspicious patterns called “Auspicious patterns”. In the frontispiece, 12 patterns selected by the author were introduced with beautiful photographs along with the origin of the patterns. For example, the kasane tortoise shell, which is sewn into the cloth on the cover, is said to have been sewn by the mother as a wedding tool, wishing for the happiness of her daughter, by overlapping the tortoise shell, which is a symbol of longevity, with an ikebata wishing for the safety of her family. . That feeling is still connected to the present day, and it seems that each time a needle is pricked, happiness is drawn, and many people seem to be healed.
