Western Sakiori by Amanda Robinette

Sakiori (which simply means ‘rag-weaving’) was a technique practiced by the Japanese peasant class from approximately the mid-18th through the mid-20th centuries. 

Sakiori is relevant to the modern-day world, where textile overproduction creates an abundance of potential materials and reducing waste in the textile stream has taken on a new urgency.  Western Sakiori explores how to implement Sakiori techniques to achieve practical, beautiful results.
