Plaid & Stripe Boro Cloth, Mix Match



✓ Vintage

✓ One of a kind

✓ Handcrafted

Elegant Early 20th Century boro cloth fabric. Boro cloth are a traditional Japanese craft created by up-cycling fabrics over generations. The cloth is created by patching and mending layers of handwoven antique and vintage textile remnants. Layers are dyed with indigo due to their inherent anti-bacterial properties. We think of boro cloth as a conversation, a beautiful work of art created with time. This piece is a one of a kind four panel boro from 1920. The boro has been repaired in multiple locations with contrasting fabrics, creating a one of a kind mix matched collage. The artisan layered up two to three layers of fabric, creating a medium weight textile. Areas of the piece have been shashiko stitched, reinforcing and adorning the fabric.
