Sashiko napkins have been one of the most common forms of Japanese craft: stitching elaborate patterns on daily-use kitchen cloths. The simple running stitch patterns not only make the fabric beautiful and special, but also makes them more durable. People used it for cooking first, then for wiping a dining table, then in the end, for cleaning the entire house.
