Our sashiko collection borrows folk textile techniques from both Japan (sashiko) and India (kantha) to create a very special cloth. Both techniques are ancient and were traditionally used on damaged and recycled cloth to add strength, give a new lease of life and add a unique aesthetic value. In the case of our Sashiko Lounger, our kantha artisans have hand embroidered irregular sashiko-style crosses on our softest and lightest hand spun and hand woven cotton. This piece in black cotton with white sashiko.


The simple cut of our Lounger is the perfect, wearable canvas for showcasing this extraordinary fabric. Falling to just below the knee, it features drop shoulders, long, wide sleeves that look best rolled up, and a wide-cut body. It's fully lined using the same, lightweight cotton.


A conversation starter, a work of art, and a spectacularly unique piece of clothing that is as sublimely comfortable as it is beautiful.
