See Traditional Hand-stitched Items During This Exhibit!

Thu, October 03, 2019 - Tue, October 15, 2019


Kogin-sashi, a form of traditional Japanese sashiko stitching, is a stitching method that started in the Edo period with cotton thread and was developed through the skills of women living in the northern areas of Japan. Though it had been declining in popularity, the Hirosaki Kogin Research Institute founded a group called the Kimura Industry Research Institute dedicated to reviving interest in the art form. These days, kogin-sashi is enjoyed by many people and is known as a way to create many different and expressive patterns. During this exhibition, you can learn about the history of kogin-sashi, see some of the research done on the topic, and view popular kogin-sashi items.
