No piece left behind.
I save down to the smallest scrap.
Japanese textiles are one of my favorite things. They are unique and a reprint will never capture the inherent depth and character of each piece. So we take every last piece and stitch together shirts.
From there we take the pieces cut off and make a sort of half-bandana or kerchief. Great for wearing around the neck or on your head. Then we take the pieces cut from that and make hatbands.
