Boro: Fabric of Life

BORO - Fabric of Life features 54 pieces (kimonos, bags, tatami ) method developed by Boro. "Boro" means rag and darning consists of different fabrics, dyeing, subsequently, textile pieces in indigo. This was a standard technique in Japan since the late eighteenth century until the mid-twentieth century. The Boro textiles spread throughout Japan for about 200 years, since the socio-economic structure remained unchanged until the early twentieth century . These pieces were rarely in cotton because this material was intended to wealthier classes.
