Reversible Japanese Wool Scarf in Boro Grid
Sorry, currently out of stock
This scarf is woven with Heritage. Imported directly from Osaka, Japan, this vintage Japanese wool has been chosen for its extreme high quality and its bold, authentic design. Handcrafted in a single limited batch, each piece is a pice of art, coming with it’s own edition number.
Woven patterns of yarn-dyed wool create an intricate, reversible pattern resembling the ‘Boro’ garments of old Japan.
Boro or “tattered rags” was a technique developed to lengthen the lifespan of worn garments by creating a patchwork of fabrics, often combined with ‘Shashiko’ style stitching to add further durability and warmth. Boro fabrics are considered today as one of Japans lost folk-crafts and are prized by collectors and curators worldwide.
