Japanese boro (yogi back) Photo by: Jared Graves Japanese Boro. Boro textiles were made in the late 19th and early 20th century by impoverished Japanese people from reused indigo-dyed cotton rags. They were patched and sewn piece-by-piece, handed down from generation to generation they became objects of desire because of their beauty , history and soul.
Installation is made of my familys old textiles. Old photographys and letters tell the story of war and tragedy of leaving home. Phototransfer, machine embroidery Photographed in Salo artmuseum, Finland
