Boro is a utilitarian material. Born from a period when Japan closed its ports to foreign goods, fabrics like cotton became extremely precious and rare. These materials were saved and repurposed from each generation to the next.
Each pillow is sewn by hand using traditional Japanese Wool Kimono fabrics, with a US-made chambray backing, and sewn here in Portland.
The inserts for our pillows are 100% cotton, sourced from the Southern United States and processed and sewn here in Portland.
