Vintage Japanese Boro Scarf
This one-of-a-kind cotton scarf is made from a strip of antique Japanese fabric dating from the late 19th century to the early 20th century with assorted fabric over patches. Selvage edges, soft to the hand, and subtle fading combine to a create a scarf that will only improve with age and wear. It bears a J. AUGUR USA hand painted stencil.
‘Boro’ translated from Japanese variously means: ragged, tattered, worn to shreds or pieces…. fundamentally it is ‘rag’. This peasant fabric was created, used, salvaged and reused by country folk over a century ago. Before ‘recycling’ became an environmental movement; hardship and impoverishment necessitated frugality, and every scrap of fabric found a purpose…again and again.
