Patterned Boro

Boro, translated to “tattered clothing” or “rags” is a Japanese textile made of patches of recycled fabrics. The Japanese folk art movement highly valued pieces like this because they embodied yō no bi which means “beauty in practicality.” These patchwork textiles were made into futonji (futon covers), noragi (workwear), and other household pieces.

Patches of plaid, striped, and ikat 19th-early 20th century fabric make up this Boro Futonji. They are secured with cotton stitching for durability.
