This is a Boro rug made over 100 years ago. It was found in the Nagano prefecture, Japan.


It has about 4 or 5 layers of indigo-dyed cotton fragments sewn on top of each other. Everything is embroidered by hand, and the texture of the faded textiles are stunning.


This rug was made of some leftover weaving fabric called Sakiori, patched and mended with a lot of small fragments.


Sakiori is a Japanese textile recycling method where strips of old fabric are woven together to create new cloth. It was traditionally used for practical items, and today it is sometimes practiced as a craft, preserving a sustainable weaving tradition.


It is thick and just right for use as a rug. It has been washed many times so it has a soft texture.


Material: Cotton 100% 


Mesures: 134cm×130cm (52in × 51in)

Vintage Japanese sashiko stitched Sakiori Boro rug
