Blessed with a mild climate and rich nature, the Enshu area has flourished since the Edo period as one of Japan's three major textile production areas (along with Senshu in Osaka and Mikawa in Aichi). Linen woven by artisans, now few in number, is a precious product that conveys the traditions and techniques of Enshu textiles that have been passed down through generations. The needle passes through the fabric easily, and the texture has rich look and feel that can only be achieved with natural materials.

The stitch patterns are printed on the linen cloth with special ink that disappears with water. The Japanese traditional pattern"Shippo Tsunagi" is arranged and used for the design on the linen cloth. The overlapping circles symbolize "happiness," "harmony," and "connections." The design is believed to bring good luck.

In order to enhance the texture of the natural linen, the Sashiko thread is also carefully selected. Sashiko thread is made of cotton dyed with natural plants. Kit includes a handmade tassel with tiny handmade Temari ball charm. The cloth is 19.6" [50 cm] square, which is a size that can be used in various ways such as a wall hanging, a beautiful cloth used to wrap gifts, and as an adornment for your tabletop.

Sashiko Thread & Tassel Charm | NONA Temari & Natural Dye in Tokyo carefully extracts colors from plants and trees, dye the threads, and produce temari balls with the threads. Conveying tradition to the present with a new sensibility, they create products that are new, yet somehow remind us of the sense of the past.
