In homage to practitioners of motif and pattern in other artisan and cultural traditions, these motifs have been translated into a textured self-stitched double cloth weave structure.
An heirloom gift to baby, essentially this technique creates 2 blankets woven together at moments of pattern, adding warmth and loft.
The Seigaiha (Ocean Waves) sashiko motif symbolises luck, power and resilience. Sashiko, meaning “little stabs”, is a Japanese stitch tradition originally practiced as mending by patching layers of cloth with tiny, precise running stitches.
Available in 2 other patterns- Geotile and Seven Treasures, each in natural cream New Zealand Corriedale wool.
