"Born in 1928, Rei Satoh hails from Tsugaru in the north of Japan. Ever since she learned this embroidery technique from her grandmother at the age of five, she was fascinated by the beautiful patterns and technical possibilities.
In their sparetime, Japanese women would apply Sashiko embroidery on working clothes and dresses. The most decorative forms of Sashiko is called Tsugaru Koginsashi and is much treasured. The characteristics of Rei Saitoh's Sashiko embroidery style lies in her original combination of traditional techniques and modern sensibility, which helped people rediscover its artistic value."
