Learn the art and history of genuine Japanese Boro with this traditional bag, using all vintage and antique textiles. Komebukuro were made of treasured scraps following the principle of mottainai - too good to waste. Originally used for making offerings or giving gifts, this is a wonderful slow stitching project.

  • Selection of vintage and antique Japanese textiles including kasuri (yarn dyed), katazome (stencil dyed), sarasa (chintz) and aizome (indigo)
  • Daruma hand sewing thread
  • Sashiko thread
