Contemporary Boro Mending


"Boro" means ragged, tattered heavily patched textile garments from Japan. When fabrics were precious especially to poor peasants, they kept kimonos, futon covers or furoshiki cloths for their entire lives, sometimes over a few generations by mending with smaller pieces of fabric over and over again. 

We are bringing the joy of treasuring your favorite clothes and "up-cycle" them with mending holes or reinforcing garments with sashiko stitches.

Please bring your own clothes, home lines or fabric that you would like to mend. We provide vintage fabric pieces from Japan, natural dye sashiko thread and teach basic mending techniques. Cotton, linen or thin canvas material is recommended to bring.
