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.
Mainly katazome indigo fabrics with kiku patterns, there are patches of indigo kasuri fabrics on this hand-stitched vintage blanket. The back side of the blanket is mostly comprised of a unique faded green fabric, with a grey floral patch. The fading and wearing fabric on this blanket are one of a kind.
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.
