BOROS


Coverage


Among a slew of coveted pieces, Boro denim remains at the top of any collector’s wishlist. Traditional Japanese craft techniques such as Boro and Sashiko are omnipresent in Kapital’s offerings. Boro is a conventional patchwork style that means “ragged’ or “tattered.” The style was favored in early twentieth-century rural Japan as cotton was scarce. When a kimono ran thin, a seamstress patched the garment with a small scrap of fabric using Sashiko stitching. Just as indigo denim is a critical element of Kapital’s authenticity, Toshikiyo and Kiro boaster their designs through meticulous deconstruction to honor and past and explore the future.
