Boro Futon Cover Japanese Antique Cloth Bed Cover Duvet

$700.00

Hand sewn boro 襤褸 futon cover. 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. The plaid outside remains in excellent condition while the patchwork inside is quite modern.
