Beauty in Boro: Kosaku Nukata

Translation missing: en.products.general.regular_price $55.00
Countless pieces of cloth that have been spliced together and passed down  generation to generation. The handiwork of nameless people, born of poverty, overwhelms the viewer. Rags, which were created by the hands of nameless people in rural settlements and fishing villages during hard times, are now so highly regarded in the field of art and textiles that they are known around the world as "BORO". This book contains approximately 400 carefully selected pieces from a collection of more than a thousand collected by Kosaku Nukata over a period of 35 years.
