Boro Textiles: Sustainable Aesthetics


[Gallery Exhibition]
Mondays: Closed
Tuesday-Thursday: 12pm-7pm
Friday: 12pm-9pm
Sat-Sun: 11am-5pm

Boro ("rags" or " tatters") are patchwork textiles hand-pieced by peasants in Japan in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The inability to cultivate cotton in the northern climate of Tohoku necessitated the practice of stitching used fabric into utilitarian items, including blankets, coats and mittens. These garments—reworked over generations—express essential principles of Japanese ethics and aesthetics, such as an appreciation for distinguished imperfections and the avoidance of waste, a subject central to the upcoming 2020 Summer Games. For the first time in the U.S., this exhibition assembles over 50 pieces from the personal collection of Chuzaburo Tanaka ( 1933-2016), a renowned folklorist and cultural anthropologist.
