Our Boro bandanas are hand-sewn in our studio at West Palm Beach. Mostly using our own dyed indigo shibori textiles.
"Boro" was a creation of the Japanese working class and peasants. It is from a time when every piece of textile was so valuable that could not be wasted. In our sustainable workshop we also use every last piece of fabric giving life to new products.
“Mottainai” philosophy, no waste!
Our textiles are sewn as the traditional Tenugui edges, which means that they are purposely seamless for quick drying. When you find that the cloth has frayed, use a pair of scissors to trim the loose threads. The more you use the cloth, the more the edges will stop fraying due to the tightening of the fabric.
