Boro (襤褸 ), a symbol of 'using everything and waste nothing' philosophy, 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.
By using remnant vintage fabrics and leftovers, this wonderful pillow is Kiriko's take on Boro, with a US-made chambray backing and sewn in their studio in Portland.
