Item Exceptional Single Hemp Fabric Zokin
Unusual to find zokin with homespun thin stripe hemp (asa) fabric, cotton sashiko threads.

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.
