Japanese rice bag blanket,

£200

Japanese rice bag blanket,

A large patchwork blanket with 'American hard wheat' branding hand printed on cotton. Boro translating as “scraps of cloth” in Japanese, Boro is a symbol of a “use everything and waste nothing” philosophy. It is a utilitarian material. Born from a period when Japan closed its ports to foreign goods, fabrics like cotton became extremely precious and rare. These materials were saved and repurposed from each generation to the next.
