Antique Boro Check futonji
Antique indigo cotton check boro futon cover fabric (futonji). Lovely old faded check futon cover panels that date from early - mid 20th century. Some of the patches are possibly older. This piece measures 132cm x 142cm. Apart from the obvious patches there are a couple of small unpatched holes and some marks, but otherwise in excellent, sturdy condition.
In recent years boro has become associated with 'visible mending', but the interesting stitching and patching on authentic boro pieces like this were on the inside of the futon cover and weren't meant to be seen. On this piece the patched side is also less faded.
A wonderful piece for collectors and lovers of authentic boro.
