Beautiful vintage Japanese cotton /hemp boro kimono fabric piece. The pattern is woven and dyed, an ikat weaving. Indigo blue, white and light blue. Crispish texture. It may be hemp but as hemp and cotton burn in identical ways, I cannot say for sure. Still has some stitching holes along the sides. Very good condition. The white has yellowed with age.
Rectangular. It measures 34 cm across and is 58cm long.
Boro thus came to predominately signify clothing worn by the peasant farming classes, who mended their garments with spare fabric scraps out of economic necessity. In many cases, the usage of such a boro garment would be handed down over generations, eventually resembling a patchwork after decades of mending. The use of indigo dyes (Japanese: Aizome) was common Boro also exemplifies the Japanese Aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, in that the fabric reflects the beauty of natural wear and use. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boro_(textile)
