potd - Zokin

Handstitched zokin cleaning cloths dating  from around the middle of the last century. Someone went to the trouble to stitch a big pile of these (I've already sold quite a few)  and they were never used. It was traditional in Japan to turn fabric remnants into cleaning cloths in this way, often  more carefully stitched than these ones. We've had them in the shop before and customers seem to use them as table mats.

    Thank you.
