Boro means “Ragged” in Japanese.
Similar to early American patchwork quilts, these Japanese futon covers were made of fabric scraps worked together to create a stronger, heavier material.
Indigo was the most prominent dye used at the time and as a result the quilts are mostly seen in a range of pale to saturated blues in a wide variety of patterns.
‘Shashiko’ stitching is used to mimic weaving and add durability. (And it looks amazing). To read more about boro and other Japanese folk textiles.- try this link . Pretty neat stuff.
