Boro futon

750.00

This is a beautiful indigo cotton boro futon which was acquired from a textile auction in Tokyo.

This futon has been extensively mended with lovely sashiko stitching and patched and padded with a dramatic variety of hand loomed and homespun indigo dyed cottons, including kasuri, katazome, and shima. Our preferred side though is the extremely tattered proper front. This boro is a thick, heavy weight due to the multiple layers of patchwork. 

An excellent archive of Japanese fabrics and collectible boro textile.

Dimensions: 31 x 57" 
Early 20th century
