Otsuchi Recovery Sashiko Project with Keiko Futatsuya
We are happy to announce that Otsuchi Sashiko Project is hosting their 2nd Sashiko Exhibition in Tokyo, Kugayama Area.
Keiko Futatsuya (Sashi.Co) has been sharing her expertise with Otsuchi Sashiko as an advisor.
This is our first commercial exhibition where you can touch, feel, and enjoy Sashiko arts such as jackets, bags, and supplies, then purchase them for you or your friends.
Sashiko is a form of stitching to strengthen the fabric. It was developed as a wisdom of ordinary people in Japan to survive in poverty.
The simplicity of Sashiko helped to start the recovery project after the earthquake Japan. We have been seeing the power of hand-crafting to make a community, and the Otsuchi Sashiko project has been functioning as the community business.
