The Japanese have a unique way to celebrate the first business in the new year, so-called “Fukubukuro (=福袋)”. Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya introduced the first Fukubukuro in 2018 (2 years ago), and it was very much fun o share Keiko’s passion and customer’s happiness. With Atsushi’s help, we offer similar Fukubukuro worldwide again in 2020. Please check the detail & terms below. We want you to try our beautiful & most comfortable Sashiko thread.
If you would like to upgrade your shipping to Express/Priority to receive faster & smoother, please choose the EMS Option by purchasing the upgrade.
*Every Fukubukuro contains a set of Sashiko Needles and Thimble so you can start the Sashiko we practice on the day you receive the Fukubukuro.
A bag filled with Sashiko Threads.
We have many colors of Sashiko thread including Natural Dyes. Keiko will pick about 3~5 skeins of Sashiko thread for this package. More than 2 of the Natural Dye Sashiko thread is promised. The needle & the thimble will be also included.
Regular Fukubukuro “plus” some fabrics we regularly use (made in Japan). Keiko will also include supplies to transfer the patterns on the fabric.
*We will include the fabric we regularly use in our daily Sashiko such as “Indigo Dye Sashiko Fabric” and “Made in Japan Denim Fabric”. Please understand that you will not choose which fabric you would receive, although we try to take your preference into the preparation.
Everything from Fukubukuro Regular & Plus, and then what Keiko wants you to enjoy.
(A Follow-up email from Atsushi in English will be available.)

- If your shipping address is within the USA, Upcycle Stitches LLC offers a similar deal, Fukubukuro. The contents may be a bit better for those who live in the USA (because of the international shipping fee). However, Keiko has some threads (colors) that Upcycle Stitches LLC does not have. Please choose as you wish – or you are welcome to purchase both and ask for the thread colors that Upcycle Stitches doesn’t carry in the USA.
