A Group of Four Boro Scraps: Wonderful Texture and Patching
ca. early twentieth century
two long pieces, each: 47" x 6 1/2", 119 cm x 16.5 cm
two short pieces, each: 18" x 5 1/2", 45.5 cm x 14 cm
This is a group of four cotton boro fragments, each of which is nicely patched, stitched and mended.
The base cloth is an indigo dyed check and stripe, and this little set of old boro pieces is full of potential, for an artistic project, for embellishing an existing textile, or to be admired.
