A Length of Striped Kasuri Boro Panel: Bold Patches
early to mid twentieth century
61" x 13", 155 cm x 33 cm
This is a handsome length of cotton boro cloth. Its base cloth is a wide, woven stripe with narrow, warp-directional kasuri details, easy to see in the detail photos here.
This rustic length is generously studded with five, big, hand-applied patches of cotton that are evenly staggered down its length and very prominent in the length's design.
The length shows overall wear, as can be expected, but it is a very handsome boro cloth with a really wonderfully attractive base.
