Japanese mending - Sashiko

Sashiko means "little stabs" in Japanese or "little pierce" and is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching that started out of practical need during the Edo era (1615-1868) in Japan. Traditionally used to reinforce points of wear or to repair worn places or tears with patches, making the piece ultimately stronger and warmer.
