A Small Boro Textile: Messy and Lovely
ca. early to mid twentieth century
23" x 15", 58.5 cm x 38 cm
This free-form and wonderfully "messy" little boro is hand stitched from six distinct pieces of cotton cloth.
Bold white cotton sashiko stitches against a field of recycled cottons is super-charming and gives the appearance that this small boro textile is an intentional collaged artwork rather than a haphazard arrangement of recycled cottons.
