Condition. -  Brand New


Sakiori is an approach to rag weaving used by the Japanese rural population until the early 20th century to cope with the scarcity of new cloth for clothing and household textiles.  In modern times there is instead an overabundance of cloth filling up thrift stores and being discarded.  Weavers can use this source of rags to make useful and surprising new cloth.  Depending on the fabric used, results can be rugged and utilatarian (like cotton rugs), or fashionable and delicate (like silk scarves).
