Neko-no-Ashi Kogin Purse by Jane MacDonald

Jane MacDonald of BeBe Bold in Lismore, NSW was inspired by kogin embroidery to create this delightful little purse. Kogin embroidery is a Japanese counted-thread embroidery technique. What characterises kogin embroidery is that the designs are geometric (usually diamond shaped), the stitches are uneven lengths and only stitched horizontally, and the designs are usually created with white cotton or hemp thread on indigo-dyed evenweave hemp.
