    Traditionally in Japan, cotton fabrics were considered an indispensable commodity. Kimonos were not always seen as simply a statement, reserved for special occasions. Historically, Kimono were worn every day through harsh Winters and scorching Summers. As such, clothing was re-used repeatedly and never thrown away. Even when completely worn out, fabrics were carefully stitched and patched back together. 

    Seeking to recreate the beautiful and intricate patchwork patterns seen in the past, Studio D’Artisan has created their latest “Noragi Kasuri Sashiko” collection by developing a proprietary jacquard weave featuring various hues of indigo-dyed mottled yarns (to mimic Kasuri dyed threads) and a vertical/horizontal Sashiko stitch running throughout. 

    Each piece of the “Noragi Kasuri Sashiko” collection seeks to pay homage to the craftsmanship and care given to traditional Japanese clothing from a bygone era.
