Large "Boro" Fabric Panel, Solid Blue With Purple Patch
From SRI: "Japan's mended and patched textiles are referred to as boro, or ragged, both in Japan and abroad. Boro textiles are usually sewn from nineteenth and early twentieth century rags and patches of indigo dyed cotton. In most cases, the beautiful arrangement of patches and mending stitches is borne of necessity and happenstance, and was not planned by the maker."
