Boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use.
Cotton was not common in Japan until well into the twentieth century, so when a kimono or futon cover started to wear thin in a certain area, the family’s women patched it with a small piece of scrap fabric using sashiko stitching.
