Boro is a Japanese word for stitched rags. In the North Islands of Japan, these patched textiles became national treasures, made from blue indigo, old kimonos and hemp rags and then stitched with a primitive running stitch.
The exhibition we visited at the Amuse Museum in Japan was so inspirational I want to share my new passion with you. Be prepared to rough up your neat edges with a day dedicated to patching denim rags and stitching them together in the style of Sashiko. This can be developed into a throw or lap quilt, made into a cushion or a small bag or purse.
