Boro: Metaphor For Life

"Boro" is a Japanese word meaning"tattered rags."  It is used to describe clothes and textiles  that have been patched and repaired many times.  The repairs have extended their lives beyond what would have been expected normally; the life span is altered and continues as work and attention are given to the worn places.  When we do not negatively judge nor deny the inherent value of the fibers, we allow its life to maintain its usefulness and worth.

And Something Blue"
