Boro Futon - Shibori Sparrow and Bamboo


An overall stunning boro futon and a highlight from our collection.

This futon has several remnants of shibori and katazome handspun indigo cottons in a bold and graphic arrangement.   

Sparrow and bamboo are common motif pairings in Japanese culture. Sparrows are represented in Japanese folklore as being obsessed with honor - especially in the repaying of debts. 

Sashiko stitching throughout. 

We'll let the photos speak for themselves.
