Sashiko is a Japanese stitch that comes in designs with repetitive trends and geometric patterns. Surprising how stitches are common across boundaries. In India, the same stitch is called ‘kantha’, a basic running stitch which is usually meant for floral motifs. Its predominant in Eastern India and one can find stoles, tunics and sarees beautifully embroidered with this stitch.

Here is my humble attempt at getting the line straight…which comes only with practice…
