Product Details

[Attention]

This item is NOT ready in the US. Based on the order amount, I will arrange the private courier to make a package from Japan. Since it will take a long time to complete the delivery, the price is discounted from the regular price. I hope that I can complete the shipping before Christmas in 2020. (Due to Covid-19, I cannot promise the delivery date as of now).

The order outside of the US is hugely depends on the Japan Post capability. Please contact me first if your country is available to deliver within 2020.




I always say it is important to learn how to prepare the fabric.

Yes, it is important to learn. However, it doesn't mean that I enjoy it all the time. It is quite difficult to prepare the pattern on good thick fabric in a larger cut. It is very time-consuming, and from time to time, I get discourage to work on a big piece because what I wan to do is Sashiko, not pattern drawing on the fabric.


I am not the one in this situation.

It is important to learn. I want everyone to know how to prepare the fabric. However, it doesn't hurt to have the "ready-to-stitch" Sashiko fabric for our pleasure. So, I made it for myself as a popular Japanese wrapping cloth (Furoshiki - 風呂敷). Since it is well produced, I am offering it to the world.


The Furoshiki is made with our most popular Indigo Cotton Fabric (Cotton 100% - best suitable for Sashiko) with interesting pattern pre-printed with washable ink. I made it as a "Do-it-Yourself" Kit.


Regular Set Contents

  • Ready to stitch/use as a *Mihaba Furoshiki. Indigo Cotton Fabrick with the pattern pre-printed. Size About 42" x 42".
  • 2 skeins of Sashiko thread (Color of your choice from regular 15 colors) will come with the set. Please list your choice of color in the check out page.
  • 1 set of a thimble & 3 Sashiko needles come with the set.
  • 1 set of DIY materials for the bag handle. I will make a video of how to make an instant bag out of Furoshiki fabric.


*Due to the lighting & combination with Indigo Dye fabric & thread, the photos of Sashiko sample has much lighter blue color. They are the same fabric. It is just how fabric looks different after stitching & based on the lighting. The fabric itself is dark Indigo color.

*You may upgrade 2 skeins of Sashiko Thread (regular dye) to "any" 2 skeins of natural Dye thread with special value of $20.00. (Some of the threads has only 1 skeins left. Please contact me for the color preference).

*If you are a previous customer & do not need skeins of threads and/or a set of needles/thimble, please contact me. I will either offer you a store credit of your previous purchase or issue a coupon to deduct the appropriate amount from the Set.

*The fabric is Indigo Dye, but NOT Hon/Sei Aizome (Not 100% Natural Indigo dye based on the Japanese tradition).


[Ready To Stitch]

This fabric is ready to stitch following the pattern preprinted with the Unshin (Needle Movement). There are no stitches sized dot printed. You will enjoy the Sashiko stitching with your own rhythm & comfortable stitches size. I strongly recommend taking the Online Sashiko Class / In-person Workshop first with Upcycle Stitches to fully enjoy this big luxery Sashiko piece.


[Ready to Use]

Our Sashiko teaches us to make both side (front and Back) beautiful with using the technique called "Kasane". With following the technique, this Furoshiki will be ready in your days right after Mizutoushi process. 4 sides of the fabrics are trimmed (tailored) with a sewing machine. The center of the fabric is nicely patchworked and clearned with lock sewing machine. Then in order to adjust the pattern, 2 fabrics are secured with sewing machine so you can stitch over the seams as well.


[Available Modification to the Set]

Based on your preference, we can modify the Set contents.

  • If you prefer to not to have the threads, needles, and thimble, please contact me with the reciept of your purchase. If the order is made in UpcycleStitches/Etsy site, your email address is just fine to confirm. If you purchase it from Amazon, please let me know your order # so I can confirm it. I sincerely would like everyone to use our thread, needle and thimble at least once to fully enjoy Sashiko. If you have it already, I am happy to adjust the price. If you do not have them, please try them with this great DIY Set.
  • The fabric without "finishing (patchworking & tailoring)" is also available upon the request (Size of About 105 cm x 52cm). Since we prepare the fabric as a set of 2, the 1 sheet of fabric become relateively more expensive. The printing require some excessive fabric to line-up the pattern, the raw fabric with pattern on have different size for the seams.
  • The Furoshiki with Sashiko stitches performed (ready to use with Sashiko Stitching done by our artisans) is available as well. Please contact us for the pricing & lead time (Please expect a few month & the price range is about $500).
  • This product is not ready as a Set in the US yet. We are working on preparing as the set in Japan. Therefore, the price may go up without any notification when everything is ready in the US.
  • The size is called "Mihaba-Furoshiki (三巾風呂敷)". I will work on an article explaining about what is Mihaba Furoshiki is.
  • In order to print the pattern efficiently and nicely, the center may be patched either horizontally or virtically. On the photos collection, You can see 2 kinds of direction. When we look the fabric from the front side, the pattern will be the exactly the same. When we look at the backside of the fabric, when we line the center to either virtically or horizontally, then the pattern may be mirror (If you have specific preference, please contact me first. Otherwise, I will send you the one randomly. It is the same pattern from the front. When we consider how the 2 fabrics are patched, the pattern may look like mirrored based on how we look at it. I hope it makes sense.
