A Length of Densely Patched Plaid Cotton: Threadbare Areas

$90.00 USD

early twentieth century
64" x 13", 162.5 cm x 33 cm

This is a wonderful boro panel: it is hand woven, harshly contrasting plaid cotton onto which about 14 or so patches have been hand stitched.

The cotton is old and is threadbare in areas which have given way to become holes, some pictured in the accompanying detail photos.

The patches are crowded and noisy and they look beautiful in the way they sit against the high-contrast woven background. The lone, narrow green patch sets off the area it occupies.

A super visually interesting length of boro taken from a futon cover, this piece has a high volume of graphic appeal and impact.

Just beautiful.
