Boro / Another beautiful aspect of Sashiko

 

We, Sashi.Co & Keiko Futatsuya, finally start dealing with Boro.

Boro became so famous all over the world, and people who enjoy and appreciate the hand-stitching art fell love in the natural beauty of Boro. We also enjoy Boro, too.

 

Then, why are these the first Boro pieces?

The reason is simple. When we were a part of a company specialized in Sashiko, the concept was to produce the fabric and cloth that “to be” Boro in future. We were proud of what we did, and “reproducing” someone’s Boro wasn’t our primary interest.

 

After several years we left the company, we start realizing how narrow-minded we were. We now collect Boro, not only for our customers but also for us to appreciate and enjoy the beauty of “time”.

 

We spend good amount of time in Spring and Summer 2016. These 2 pieces are ready to be in front of art-lovers. These pieces will make their debut in Australia.

FAQ – Frequent Asked Questions.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are Jackets for sale? Are they made in order?  Also what are the price range of Jacket?

(Answer)

Customers can purchase any jackets on this website. They are all “one-of-a-kind” jackets, so once it is sold, we will not be able to make the same one ever again.

We try to make jackets by customer’s order based on their preferences. Since we use “KOFU (Old Japanese Fabric)” to make the Jacket to achieve our concept, we will need to ask customers to wait for plenty of time for us to produce. We will find the right fabric for customer’s need.

The price of Jacket are shown on the product page. An estimated price for made-to-order Jacket will be determined by several factors such as kind of fabric, pattern of Sashiko stitches, and amount of Kofu we use.

*We value Japanese old fabric. Our concept is to produce “one of a kind” jacket by reviving the old torn fabric. It will be very difficult to produce something identical from previous (sold-out) jackets. It is also challanging to meet our jackets to customer’s need. We will do our best to understand customer’s preference, and try to find the best match fabric. Please contact us for further consultation.

Are they “one size fits all” or tailored by order?

 

(Answer)

The model (my mother’s) size is ;

【HEIGHT】: About 169 cm

【BUST 】: About 90 cm

 

The fee to adjust the jacket to your size is included to the listed price. However, it will be very difficult to make the jacket bigger. Please read the “sizing information” for more explanation.
