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 two layers of vintage Japanese fabrics; a striped side, and a solid side, both indigo-dyed. There is an opening at one end as if to slip a futon in. 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.
