Boro Wovens, Slub Canvas in Indigo - CANVAS

Moda

Boro is a style of patchwork, though it is less about a craft or technique than a way to salvage textiles using scraps. The farming classes of Japan would mend torn clothing and other textiles using rough running stitches out of economic necessity and the scarcity of cotton cloth.

Embodying the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi -- the acceptance of imperfections -- boros have many shades of color and a variety of textures as the result of being created over the course of many years by successive generations of a family.
