A Very Handsome Boro Length: Noragi Sleeve
ca. early twentieth century
29" x 13", 73.5 cm x 33 cm
This length of indigo dyed boro cotton is much more handsome in person than what is shown in the accompanying photos.
It is a fragment from a noragi or a work coat--the cotton is tightly woven and beautifully colored; the seven patches are densely stitched to the base and are in good contrast to the heavily woven base cloth.Take a leap of faith and acquire this length of boro cloth: it is a very good one, even for its modest size and presentation.
