Boro Futon Fragment - "White" Boro
Small fragment of a larger boro futon. This boro in the market is referred to as "white" boro - as the patches started off from a gauzy, white cotton and were discolored over time. Typically these garments and textiles would be overdyed in indigo vats when they became too soiled. Here we have a rare fragment that has not been dyed.
Early to mid 1900s
