Our 60x200 cm table runners have embroidered stitching on the corners. Inspired by Sashiko stitching.
“Sashiko (刺し子, literally "little stabs" or "little pierce") is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching (or functional embroidery) from Japan that started out of practical need during the Edo era (1615-1868). Traditionally used to reinforce points of wear or to repair worn places or tears with patches, making the darned piece ultimately stronger and warmer,this running stitch technique is often used for purely decorative purposes in quilting and embroidery. The white cotton thread on the traditional indigo blue cloth (said to recall snow falling around old farmhouses) gives sashiko its distinctive appearance, though decorative items sometimes use red thread” Wikipedia
Portuur products are handmade and will never be identical. This is the beauty and uniqueness of handmade products. Items might have variations in fabric, colour and pattern. Although folded the same, the discharge and dying process cannot be controlled, therefore every piece is unique and no two pieces will ever be the same.
