I came across this beautiful Japanese boro on Ebay. It’s for sale for almost $ 1.000,-. The details are;

  • Japanese Boro patchwork Kimono jacket
  • Circa 1920’s Japan
  • Consigned from The Liao Collection of Philadelphia
  • Hand patched cotton fabrics
  • ‘Sashiko’ stitching
  • Open front
  • Short sleeves
  • Indigo dyed cotton fabrics
  • A hand-made utilitarian object, heavily used over time
