"I will bring you back to the main stage..."
Keiko always speak to "fabric" when she encounter old fabric; "Kofu" or "Boro" which used to be on the main stage as Kimono or other Japanese style clothes.
Fabrics age as human do.
They get weaken, and sometimes they get torn. However, the beauty of its fabric still remain even after many years have passed. In fact, they improve its appearance by aging.
Keiko and I know that aged fabric can fascinate people all over the world as fabric attract us so much. Keiko has been working in the field of Sashiko for more than 30 years. And now, Sashi.Co is her main stage.
I will bring you guys back to the main stage.
SASHIKO: to revive the fabric.
The core concept of SASHIKO is to strength the fabric. The Japanese back in time enjoyed beautiful patterns when they fixed their own clothes and fabric. SASHIKO is as simple as that.
In 2015, we live in the world where people can find fabric anywhere. We do not need to recycle or fix fabric to make our life wealthier. We believe, therefore, it is important to remember the appreciation to the fabric.
We are the group of professionals in Sashiko.
We love the fabric, new or aged, the piece of human's work.
We appreciate the fabric, and Sashiko. hand-work.
We are the Sashi.Co.
