Item Exceptional Single Cotton Zokin
Unusual to find zokin with homespun hemp (asa) sashiko threads. And, early 1900 fabric, lovely fade to it.

Zokins have been used for centuries in Japanese homes, temples, and schools to hand clean wooden floors and tatami mats.

Zokins were made from layered pieces of old fabric held together with sashiko stitching. They were boro patched regularly as holes appeared, reused again and again.
