I brought this magnificently beautiful thing back with me from my April buying trip to Japan–and when I first saw it my heart raced. Such good, boro mosquito netting–woven from rustic hemp or ramie yarns as this one is–are harder and harder to find these days.
Its threads are rich, wiry and hand plied. And the color: that watery, pale, blue or asagi iro as it’s called in Japan, helps create the impression of a cooling waterfall in the way I have it displayed.
