late nineteenth century

This very handsome, old boro panel is taken from a futon cover--and it demands a second look.  

It is a very good panel, one that is rich in age, hand stitching, and wonderful, old, hand loomed, indigo dyed cloth. 

By looking at the texture achieved by hand stitching and the many old cotton fragments, one is easily able to tell that this is a very good example of a boro cloth, and one that should be considered for its excellent presentation and component parts.

The base cloth is hand stitched from two pieces of hand woven cotton cotton.  The entire surface of this base cloth covered in patches, about 14 in all and each of the patches seems to be of a similar age to the base cloth, making this a cohesively old length of cloth.

It is notable to mention that this boro panel is of good age, more than likely its making dates to the late nineteenth century but its cloth components could be much older. As said above, all the cloth used in making this length are contemporary to one another. This fact, and the age of this length are desirable factors when thinking to acquire a boro textile.

A really wonderful, cut-above-the-rest boro panel and one to seriously consider owning.
