Imogene + Willie have recently released their boro scarf, a beautiful mix of recycled fabrics woven together which includes indigo-dyed and other fabric scraps they have collected over the years, especially for this project. Aside from an already solid line-up of garments each season from Imogene + Willie, I love the addition of this scarf because its both a work of art and perfect for keeping the cool breeze at bay.
"Boro is a Japanese word meaning “tattered rags.” Like early North American patchwork quilts, boro textiles reveal much about the living standards of Japanese peasant families in the late 19th-20th century. Lovingly patched and sewn using reused and recycled indigo-dyed cotton rags, each unique piece weaves together a rich, multi-generational story filled with heart and soul."
