Part of our ‘KAUKAU from Japan’ collection, the Boro Pillow cushion is a celebration of craft of Boro fabric. Each cushion is unique & hand-sewn, incorporating the intricacies of Boro stitch work.

The term ‘Boro’ comes from ‘Boromono’, which translates to ‘rag thing’. Using a Japanese form of mending using ‘Sashiko’ stitching, Boro fabrics are created by repeatedly patching and mending cloth to extend its lifespan. It has close ties to the Japanese philosophy of Mottainai, a movement generally involved in minimising waste and respecting resources.

Boro Cushions are constructed entirely of Boro fabric and hand finished. Due to the considerable age of this fabric, each cushion does not appear ‘as new’. The faults and impressions with each cushion have been left intentionally, please contact KAUKAU if you would like any further details or imagery of each cushion.

Includes handmade inner made from 100% cotton, with a mixed filling of recycled flocking, woollen/bamboo wadding & polyester.
