An Unusual and Elaborately Mended Boro Futon Cover

Written on October 22, 2011

Beautiful, isn’t it?  The base cloth is hand spun, hand loomed cotton and some of the patches are commercially produced cotton pieces, which tells us the cloth that comprises the futon cover has spanned at least one generation.

    So unusual. Looks like a lot of reverse applique technique to layer the different bits of fabric. If I’m understanding the photos, even the mending fabrics were mended. Very beautiful.

    Quite organic, almost dr. seuss-like. i love the patches which are purple and brown, so unusual.
