A Soft and Supple Boro Length: Wearable
early to mid twentieth century
69" x 13 1/2", 175 cm x 34.25 cm
This beautifully worn length of patched cotton kaya or mosquito netting has been used so well that its texture is soft and supple.
It would make a wonderful scarf.
The richly indigo dyed cotton base cloth is mesh-like and kind of clingy in character, and it is studded with four lovely cotton mending patches shown in the accompanying photos here.
Created from a beautifully dyed color palette, this length of lightweight cotton is simply beautiful.
