A piece of Japanese vintage Shima fabric with Sayagata Sashiko pattern on. Since the vintage fabric was so fragile, we layered with cotton poplin fabric to strengthen it. Shima Stripe dyed fabric is very popular Japanese vintage fabric. Many boros would have the Shima vintage fabric on it. The sashiko stitching is done by hands.
The design is based on the Japanese traditional pattern so-called Sayagata (紗綾形）. The back of the fabric is cleaned. With stitching over double layers, it is a great piece of fabric for the repair fashion.

Upcycle Stitches / Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya are a group of Sashiko artists. We usually make Sashiko stitching with a purpose, like making a Sashiko Jacket and/or a Sashiko Bag.
However, from time to time, we enjoy Sashiko stitchings without any purposes. Just for fun and enjoy stitching. In addition to that, we occasionally get a piece of fabric after we make a product. We kept piling them in a drawer, and we realize that there may be people who are interested in these fabrics.
These fabrics are good for repairing your garments. We offer some tutorials how to do so with Sashiko fabrics. It can be used for dining/kitchenware by putting the back fabric and finishing them.
*Our customer shared a nice idea. After trimming the edge of the fabric, then put it in a frame. It would be a nice wall decoration.
