This rug is a special Sashiko Boro.

Great Sashiko stitching.
This stitch is called "Otoko-Sashi" ( man stitch ).

This Boro rug has been repeatedly stitched in repair.
It is very thick by being stitched over and over again.

Sashiko was women's work, but when it became too thick for women to sew, men sewed it. This is called "Otoko-Sashi". Men sew with a very thick needle.
It is a wild Sashiko stitch." If an item has been made with "Otoko-Sashi" stitches, the item itself is full of history.
