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. 

This blanket is thick with many layers of vintage Japanese fabrics. Most of the blanket is made from indigo striped fabrics, and there are some lighter kasuri fabric patches, mainly on the front. There are holes and tears, sometimes showing multiple layers of fabric beneath the surface. It is a piece of textile history, waiting for its next owner.

Carefully selected and imported from Japan, this product is truly one of a kind. We have not added or done any repairs to this piece. Due to the age of the fabric, it may tear easily and have holes or stains.
