Comments Sashiko stitching layers of fabric together made for a warm jacket during the Japanese cold winter months. Another wonderful example of the Japanese tradition of "mottainai" or the distaste of wasting anything which has useful life remaining and prolonging a garment's endurance by relentless boro patching and mending.
