Boro is a word used to describe Japanese textiles that have been pieced, patched, repaired and passed down from generation to generation - utilitarian objects that are rich and sumptuous and that, although old in age, possess a contemporary aesthetic. You'll learn Boro-specific stitching, patching and mending techniques and use them to create a Japanese Side-Sewn book that will serve as a reference for future mending projects. Then, on day two, you'll turn a length of cloth into a traditional Japanese-style bag (either a tsunobukuro or an azumabukurothat) that can be used as a project bag, shopping bag, or as wrapping for a very special gift. You'll leave with plenty of inspiration for future projects
