Shima Boro - Two-panel Japanese Indigo Dyed Cotton Patchwork Futon Cover
Hand sewn boro 襤褸 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. This was originally a futon cover that was made from patchwork made from shima striped handwoven cotton. This is a complete piece with the stuffing taken out. Like a pillow case. The images are of the outside front and back and the inside when the piece is turned inside out.
