I have several pieces of old Japanese Boro - mended indigo fabrics. Each is made up of layers of bits and pieces of fabric, created by need but beautiful in their design. It is not as regular in it's design as patchwork but more freeform. I am beginning on some new work that I hope will take inspiration from these pieces. I like the connection to these past artisans and hope to learn more by looking at these peices very closely as I go forward.
