Sashiko is a form of Japanese folk embroidery using the basic running stitch to create a patterned background. The geometric patterns include straight or curved lines of stitching arranged in a repeating pattern. The Japanese word Sashiko means little stabs and refers to the small stitches used in this form of needlework.

Originally, sashiko was used as a form of darning to repair or add strength to worn areas of clothing, or to create insulated double-layer coats. Due to its beauty and durability it has become an art form rather than just functional, and is very popular with quilters.
