More about this digital file


The appealing marriage of indigo and white has a long and enduring history in Japanese textiles. Kogin embroidery is a variation of Sashiko and was traditionally worked using this classic colour scheme of white thread on blue cloth.

Employing one of the simplest embroidery stitches on even weave fabric, a myriad of patterns can be created by varying the length of running stitches.

This chair pad or cushion showcases numerous geometric designs and is neatly finished with a twisted cord.
