East Meets West: Champion's Latest Collection Is Designed With Japanese Sashiko Stitching


Sashiko has really been making the rounds this year. From the adidas Originals NMD R1 ‘Sashiko’, to the Footpatrol x PUMA Tsugi Shinsei ‘Sashiko’ pack, the traditional Japanese stitching method is now arriving on clothing too, namely Champion’s latest collection.

A practice that was pragmatically used to strengthen points of wear and create warmer clothes through embroidering techniques, Champion uses this method to ornament a selection of sweaters, quilted hoodies, and a tote bag.
