Sashiko is a traditional Japanese embroidery technique that uses running stitch to create beautiful geometric patterns.

These authentic Japanese sashiko needles are my favourite – they’re long and perfect for mending denim and other sturdy materials.

You don’t need specialty sashiko needles to try sashiko stitching – a sharp embroidery needle with a large eye could work – but these are well made and a joy to use (when you’re not swearily stitching your way through multiple layers of denim).

Each pack contains 2 sashiko needles of different lengths.

Made in Japan and packaged in fabric, cardstock and a plastic sleeve by the manufacturer.
