Boro: Rags And Tatters From The Far North Of Japan

Publisher: Aspect

Year: 2014

Format: Softcover

Edition: Second

Condition: New

This publication presents a unique survey of the Japanese textile tradition of Boro. Literally translated to ‘rags’, and originating in the cold climate of Northern Japan, the practice involves the process of collecting discarded pieces of cloth and stitching them together to create clothing and household furnishings. Long overlooked in Japan on account of the associations between boros and poverty, there has been a new found (particularly Western) interest in boros – both for their artistry, as well as the socio-historical insight they provide.
