Sashiko Circles Necktie
The name Sashiko or “little stabs” is a reference to the plain running stitch that has been used in Japan for centuries to reinforce and prolong the life of fabric and garments with geometric patterns.
Sashiko had it’s beginnings with rural people in the Northern regions of Japan during the Edo period (1615 to 1868), but has remained popular until modern times. Sashiko patterns have a pleasing aesthetic, and great care is taken to use regular stitches and precise amounts of space between stitches.
The fabric used to make the Sashiko Circles Necktie and Batwing bow tie by Olaf Olsson has a number of interesting Sashiko patterns.
