Regular price
Sale price

During Japan's Edo period, a style if needlework was born from a need to make fishermen's clothing stronger and warmer. The "little stabs" of running stiches known as sashiko soon became an art form, inspiring this tale told from the perspective of a child who witnesses her mother stitch love and protection "into cloth as blue as the summer sea."
