Derived from the Japanese boroboro, meaning something tattered or repaired. Boro refers to the practice of reworking and repairing textiles through piecing, patching and stitching, in order to extend their use. I love this technique, and because of it I can show off the variety of tent designs out there that are normally only seen in mass in Festival camp-sites!!

I accidently made myself a BoroBag. Making my first as an intended gift, I carefully took it out on a test run, and then again, and again and again. Now it is mine and I love it! I use it daily to carry my laptop, notebooks, small projects and various other items.

Using tent fabrics that I have salvaged from Festival camp-sites I create these vibrant and unique BoroBags . Each bag has a main inner area with a small pocket suitable for a mobile phone or small purse/wallet. They also have two large pockets, one on each side so you can carry even more stuff around with you!! Strong webbing handles mean your, now potentially heavy bag, will be easy to carry around on your shoulder.

If you can’t find what your after in the shop, ask me about a commission piece.

  1. Samantha Robinson

    I just love this bag — and I have had so many compliments about it when I have used it out and about. Kirstie spoke to me about the sort of colours I would like and the result is a bright, vibrant, completely unique and extremely useful bag. Roomy enough for a laptop, it has handy outside pockets, too, which I have managed to cram with everything from dog toys to make up! From the external stitching to the fabulous fabrics, the bag is a real one-off — beautiful, bespoke, yet supremely practical.

  2. Penny Prior

    I love my bright and colourful bag. I love to show off the vibrant colours when shopping and it’s great for a laptop or tablet too for work with your notebook.
    I’ve known Kirsty for a while and she is the consummate professional, super passionate about the environment which makes me want to do more xx
