These sashiko sampler cloths from Daruma are a great introduction to sashiko and some of the one stitch (hitomezashi) patterns. The lines are worked horizontally, vertically and sometimes diagonally to create the intricate patterns.
The samplers come as a pre-printed cloth which is doubled up to create a neat cloth with finished edges. After stitching the printed lines will disappear with a gentle wash.
The finished cloth size is approx 34cm square.
English instructions included. Most of these designs take 50 to 100m of thread. We recommend our Daruma Fine thread on cards or skeins.
We sell beautiful and useful things for makers. Our products are sourced with care and consideration for those who make them and we work with smaller companies and individuals whose sourcing and manufacturing process are transparent.
We hope to be an inclusive company and strive to create an environment that is welcoming and embraces diversity, both with our online presence, the makers we represent, our physical pop-ups events and our collaborations.
We welcome suggestions about how we can improve our approach.
