"Sashiko-ori" is a traditional Japanese craft that has been practiced since ancient times. It originated from the hand-stitched layers of fabric, believed to reinforce clothing, provide insulation, and serve as decorative elements imbued with people's wishes and prayers for abundance, protection and prosperous businesses! The practice is said to date back to the early 16th century and has been brought to life once again in the exclusive Gold Label collection by Miki House.


    What is the Sashiko-ori?

    Sashiko-ori is machine woven Sashiko cloth or the technique to produce it, developed half a decade ago by Kenichi Oba in Fukushima. He invented the loom to weave a textile and to apply Sashiko embroidery on it at the same time. This loom can only produce a meter of fabric in an hour. It has been maintained by the his family for four generations adjusting a little by little depending on temperature and humidity. He was awarded a prize by The Japan Folk Crafts Museum in 1979.
    The Sashiko-ori loom can make more complicated patterns than Sashiko that are done by hand. The fabric carefully created by the vintage loom has soft and warm touch different to ones produced by today’s machinery.
