Indigo-Dyed Sashiko Apron

This is an Indigo-dyed, early 20th century apron with meticulously done, white-thread Sashiko stitching, formed into a traditional Asa-no-ha (hemp-leaf) pattern. The apron is two layers of Indigo cotton which has been minutely stitched to add strength to the fabric, creating beauty in an every-day, rural textile.

The Indigo color in our Sashiko Apron is actually a much deeper, richer shade of Indigo than is shown in these photos.

Two inches of this Sashiko stitching has approximately 20 tiny stitches in it.
