antique japanese boro textiles










from 1800-1900's, these are futon covers and kimonos made by impoverished japanese people with indigo dyed cotton rags. look at all the stitching, the work, and the repairs... you can actually buy these at kimonoboy.com the futon covers range from $160-650. the boro kimono is $1350. they should be in museums!!! or my home.
