Boro Futon Cover Panel (77)
Authentic boro stitched and patched panel
This is a classic stitched and patched boro futon cover dating from the late 19th - early 20th century. The original fabric is an indigo striped cotton which has been repaired over the years to create a wonderful patchwork of plain indigo, stripes, checks and one piece of very old kasuri on the reverse. This is a wonderul example of the authentic make-do origins of boro style stitching. Part of one seam needs restitching. It measures approximately 158 x 152 cm .
