Mishima Kogin

Mishima kogin in Japan is a form of kogin zashi and is characterised by pattern darning. Kogin literally means 'small cloth' and zashi means 'stitches'. Kogin is one of the sashiko forms, which were developed by the farmers of the Tsugaru region in the northern part of Honshu Island, Japan, and particular from the delta of the Iwaki river.
