One of my treasures : a Boro. They are a class of Japanese textiles dating from the 18th to the early 20th century, that have been mended or patched together.The term is derived from Japanese boroboro which means patches and repaired.Boro also exemplifies the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi, in that the fabric reflects the beauty of natural wear and use. The particular stitching 🧵 is called Sashiko and the time taken to stitch the pieces of cloth together is an important part of what we know consider works of art. #jennifershorto #Boro #japan #indigo #wabisabi
