In my previous post, directly below this one, I mentioned that I love old, traditional, Japanese aprons. Well, here’s another one, very different from the sashiko stitched piece shown in the last post–and this one is smashing.
The tight tonal range of the blues really enhances the enjoyment of the arrangement of patches. The fine weave of the mending cotton against the thick weave of the base cloth enriches the visual experience.
The apron measures 27″ x 24″ or 68.5 cm x 61.
