Boro is a Japanese word meaning “tattered rags.” Like early North American patchwork quilts, boro textiles reveal much about the living standards of Japanese peasant families in the late 19th-20th century. Lovingly patched and sewn using reused and recycled indigo-dyed cotton rags, each unique piece weaves together a rich, multi-generational story filled with heart and soul.
What used to be associated with poverty is now viewed as a work of art.
