A Beautiful Boro Length: Segments and Thick White Thread
ca. early to mid twentieth century
64" x 13 1/4", 162.5 cm x 33.5 cm
This is a wonderful, clean and clear length of boro cloth, hand stitched from thick, white cotton thread and comprised of eight pieces of cloth.
The overall look is just beautiful for its deep and subtle color and for the bold areas of cloth which comprise each of its segments. Note on the topmost piece there is a piece of irregularly-shaped cloth, which is most likely a leftover scrap from making an article of clothing--just lovely.
Also note that this piece is can be viewed from both sides, depending on preference.
