I've just added some more well- patched and stitched boro textiles to my website  here.  I hope to add some more in the next few days.

The first one is square mat  in near perfect condition dating from early 20th century.  It's made up of pieces of kasuri, stripes and printed cotton  with  a maroon check on the reverse.

The next one is another slightly older mat. It's quite heavily layered and has some unrepaired damage. i love the red in the kasuri down the side - just gives a lift and some added warmth:

The last one for now is a lovely soft, faded,  late 19th century katazome (stencil dyed) futon cover panel with boro patches on the back.
