What You'll Get

Traditional Japanese boro cloths have a beauty like no other. Each cloth tells a unique story of its journey through life with patches carefully sewed on and reinforced with stitching, often over generations of a single family.

The cloths can be viewed to embrace the concept of 'wabi sabi', that sees beauty in an object's impermanence and imperfection.

We will be using modern Sachiko stitches, a functional running stitch for mending and reinforcing boro, that will create decorative embroidery.

Each repair becomes a creative challenge. It's a chance for the sewer to express themselves whilst also being an important time for contemplation and mindfulness.
