Elegant Early 1950s Pomegranate Shōwa Boro cloth. Boro cloth is a traditional Japanese craft created by up-cycling fabrics over generations. The blanket are 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. We recommend using the fabric as a blanket, on top of a bed or draped on the backside of a sofa. Due to the nature of these traditional textiles, there may be areas with wear, staining, and holes. We feel these imperfections help to tell the history of the piece. Each cloth is one of a kind.
