Boro • wabi-sabi

A mending technique which dates back centuries,  boro comes to us from the Japanese word boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired. Traditionally used to strengthen  homespun clothes, worn out clothes were pieced together to make new garments using simple stitches. With this durable mending technique  these clothes increased their strength and embraced their inherent transience. All of this celebrating the Japanese  aesthetic wabi-sabi, embracing the beauty in transience and imperfection. Bringing new life  to non-virgin materials carries with it a renewed importance in our world as we mitigate the very real impact of decades of overproduction.

We are inspired by this tradition at The Remnant Society. Our aim is to keep as many garments in use as long as possible.
