Item Stunning Indigo Cotton Boro Textile. We believe this piece was a Shikibuton (futon underquilt or padding) but may have had a different purpose, ie blanket or ?.

The original base fabric was 4 simple indigo cotton panels, hand stitched together to form the entire textile. Then, over years as the fabric became worn, time and time again, boro patched were carefully sewn on top of the damaged areas to become in the tattered circumstances as you see it now.

Presence of lovely sashiko stitching. A wonderful variety of faded indigo fabrics layers mostly solids but also small pattern stripes and checks.
