These decorative stitching patterns, while visually gorgeous are also… wait for it… TOTALLY FUNCTIONAL. Sashiko means “little stabs” in Japanese. It is a decorative reinforcing technique traditionally used to repair worn places or tears with patches, usually utilizing white cotton thread with indigo with just a running stitch. Its a genius technique in its simplicity, and the outcome is stunning:
