Japanese Textile Design: With its origins as the Chinese garment hanfu, the style of the Japanese kimono evolved over time to reflect cultural changes through the nation’s history. The kimono is considered a form of high art in the Japanese tradition. The artisans who weave the cloth, design and decorate the fabric, and assemble the final garment are all of the highest caliber.
Born out of necessity and coincidence – Boro is creating new uses for discarded textiles by layering pieces of cloth, attaching them together with sashiko stitching and patching them with a diversity of cloths in a freely artistic way. Best kind of recycling.
