Shop Sashiko Thread wisely
Since Sashiko is getting popular, you can find many Sashiko threads available in the market. Make sure to be a smart customer there. You can shop Sashiko thread wisely in two perspectives.
1. Choose the best quality and purpose
The core concept of Sashiko is to mend, repair, and repurpose the fabric. Therefore, if you have a thread already, you do not need to buy the new one. However, if you are ready to purchase the new skein of thread, make sure that you get “Sashiko” thread. The Sashiko thread with the best quality will make your stitching last longer and will improve your stitching. Some of the thread is cheap, and some are the other sides. For example, our thread price range is from $12.00 to $30.00. Sounds a bit expensive? Some of the threads are expensive because of Natural Dye such as Indigo or Kakishibu.
However, the thread length is 145 meter. Yes. 145 meter.
I didn’t use up the whole skein even after stitching the entire denim jeans pants. It is how big of an amount for the skein of thread,
2. Know who you are buying from
Since Sashiko is getting popular, many dealers are jumping into the market regardless of its small size.
Let’s say, if you purchase a skein of Sashiko thread from a non-Sashiko related dealer, you may save a few quarters. There are many markets places that the many kinds of dealers are competing for the attention. However, these non-Sashiko related dealers will not provide you the advice or information regarding Sashiko. They are merely moving a product from left to right.
If this is a market in mass production and mass consumption, then I would understand that the principal of capitalism and fair business rules: the cheaper the better.
I would say, for Sashiko, it is more like “how to preserve culture” aspect instead of making the profit for the capitalists.
Please be part of the upcycling movement by choosing the good products from a seller who sells not only the product but also the culture behind it.
