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.
