Nishi Kogin

Nishi kogin is a form of kogin zashi (a type of pattern darning) from Japan. Kogin literally means 'small cloth' and zashi means 'stitches'. It is one of the sashiko forms, and was developed by the farmers of the Tsugaru region in the northern part of Honshu Island, Japan, and in particular from west of the Iwaki River.
