A collection of "sashiko" patterns for celebration and prayer.
In the past, it was customary for mothers in Japan to give their daughters an embroidered cloth for their wedding. Japanese mothers would embroider various prayer patterns on a cotton cloth to wish for their daughters' happiness.
In this book, you can see many fine and beautifully patterned cloths, stitched by the author Hiroko Kondo, who continues to pass down her handiwork to the next generation.
It also introduces the lives of women who have supported "sashiko" culture.
