A Striped Silk Boro Length: Four Patches
ca. mid to late nineteenth century
34" x 14", 86.5 cm x 35.5 cm
This is a very simple but very beautiful length of indigo dyed boro silk
which shows woven, deep colored narrow stripes. The silk itself is
quite heavy and stiff, and the color is a deep and rich sapphire blue.
Onto the cloth four patches of the same silk are hand stitched,
creating a subtle contrast between the patches and the base cloth. The
condition is good overall, with a tight, glossy surface.
