Tulip Sashiko Sewing Kit, Hungary - Rose Medallion

Sashiko World sewing kit by Tulip. The kit includes everything you need to complete your decorative kitchen cloth or wall hanging, including a handy pre-printed cloth to follow for a very neat finish! The printing on the cloth can be removed with water after finishing the design. Sashiko is a traditional embroidery style from Japan. Originally used for repair and reinforcements in clothing, now it is often used for decorative purposes. All Sashiko patterns are created with a basic running stitch, with the aim of keeping stitches as regular as possible so it is similar to hand quilting, however Sashiko designs are created on a single layer of fabric. 

A variation from the older design known as 'rotating rose'. The motif is called Rosetta, which is a symbol of the sun and an amulet to protect the owner. Originally used to decorate church windows, later appearing in folk art.
