Sashiko-no-donza 19th-20th c Awaji Island H 130 cm – W 122 cm Indigo-dyed cotton strengthened and embellished with embroidery. The technique of simple running stitches is found throughout Japan, but on the small rural island of Awaji located into the Inland Sea, fishermen’s wives exploited its possibilities with special verve and imagination. Their dazzlingly complex patterns transformed these utilitarian work clothes into ceremonial attire and emblems celebrating the identity of fishermen.
