This kit contains everything you need to create your own pin cushion and embroider it with a kagome pattern, a geometrical lattice design, using sashiko, a Japanese needlework technique. Established in Japan during the Edo period (1603-1868 CE), sashiko was used to repair and reinforce worn-out fabrics, as well as stitching together layers of cloth for insulation and warmth in the cold winter months. Repeating patterns with motifs from nature are often embroidered using the sashiko technique, which gradually became used for decorative purposes. This kit contains instructions in English and Japanese as well as a lacquered box made of paulownia wood scraps, obtained from the company’s production of Iwayado Tansu, ornate chests of drawers with origins in the 12th century CE.

Avoid leaving in direct sunlight.
Avoid moisture.
