Boro Blanket

NM-FT-1005
Sold out

Beautiful futon cover with katazome (stencil dyed) cotton on the face and boro on the reverse.  Boro is a Japanese form of recycling coming from an economic necessity in which fabric is patched on the reverse side to preserve the usability.  The beauty comes from the unintentional artistry created from layers of mending.Cotton
