WHY IS IT SUSTAINABLE?
The sashiko thimbles were made by Seki Works, a leather worker who uses scraps from bag making to make amazing leather sheaths, sashiko thimbles and more. We appreciate these custom made sashiko thimbles they made for us.
The focus this kit places on preserving your clothing rather than disposing of it and sending it to the landfill speaks to an act of sustainable practice and function that benefits the environment.
I love the needs, the snips, the strings, all of it. I recommend these kits to anyone who will listen. I loved the little fabric book too.
