Derived from the Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired, boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles (often clothes or bedding) through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use. We found this unique piece at an antique market in Kyoto.

When we set out on a sourcing trip to find products we always like to wander through back streets, explore antique and general markets and speak to the locals because you never know what you may find or where the path will take you. We love Japan because even the most unassuming and seemingly desolate street can be the home to secret treasures.

On our recent trip through Kyoto we visited antique markets, shops we discovered tucked away in backstreets and spoke to local makers to find a treasure trove of items to bring back. Each piece tells its own story, antiques and market pieces that have age and character, others that are handcrafted while some are just things we couldn’t resist from little boutiques.
