Japanese Indigo Blanket with Boro


Early Showa period indigo boro blanket, made from a deconstructed workers haori and patched together with rudimentary stitching. It has faded uneavenly, thus revealing the different hues of blue only found in aged indigo.  This is a handsome, structurally sound piece.
