Inspired by deep space objects and the beauty of the cosmos; this special edition Sashiko blanket was designed by "Astro Christie," a space photographer from Los Angeles. By using a mixture of dissolving dye crystals and precise highlight sprays, this blanket has a unique pattern that evokes the stars and nebulae above us. No two blankets are the same! It makes for an incredible home decor piece.

With its comfort, strength, and ease... our dyed Sashiko makes for an excellent blanket. This simple throw measures 80in x 56 inches (2m x 1.4m), and it works in the home or at the park. If you get it dirty, then go ahead and wash it on the hottest setting. This can stand up to anything! The color will fade wonderfully with use, and all edges are fully taped and bound. 

Epaulet Japanese Sashiko Fabric

Our classic pure cotton Sashiko cloth is woven in Japan for use in martial arts uniforms. Known as Dogi (cloth of the way), this fabric has a thick pique weave with well-defined "rice gain" structure. It allows natural stretch and flexing with movement, it absorbs moisture and stays away from your skin and it gains exceptional tensile strength.. far above a comparable twill weave. Given the large texture of the weave, you can expect a nice patina with wear. 

Each Sashiko blanket begins its journey as a stiff, neutral white garment. It's plunged into an organic reactive dye bath for about 48 hours.. allowing the pigment to entirely soak through its distinctive "rice grain" texture. The soft drape and comfort of this final product cannot be overstated! 

 Each piece is made from start to finish in Los Angeles, California.
