Comment
NOTE: After we acquired this textile, we noticed upon closer inspection that someone had recently sewn on extra boro patches, appearantly in the attempt to enhance its appearance. We believe that at least 80% of the boro patches are original. How do we know some are not original?......we can see that the added boro patches do not cover holes or thin areas in this futon cover as would be in the normal case.

It looks great though!
