Part of our ‘KAUKAU from Japan’ collection, the Boro Floor 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.

Each cushion is constructed from Boro fabric with a white cotton denim base. The cushions have been layered with recycled flocking, wrapped in woollen batting with an outer bamboo wadding layer for additional support.

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.

DIMENSIONS: 650 x 650 mm
