One-of-a-kind piece of vintage indigo cotton fabric from Japan, with an all-over check pattern sewn together in patches. Also contains unique patchwork areas and sashiko stitching throughout.
A traditional patchwork style, Boro, meaning “ragged”, “tattered”, or “repaired”, is a class of Japanese textiles that have been handed down over generations after decades of mending.
Often used by farmers, merchants or artisans in Japan from Edo era up to early Showa (17th – early 19th century), it is now a rare and unique part of history of fabric.
Every piece is one of a kind characterized by the beautifully faded colour and often patched with “Sashiko” traditional hand stitching details.
*Vintage fabric may contain areas of discolouration, small holes, or snags. These are not considered defects, but are instead cherished assets that add to the character and history of each piece.
