Boro is the Japanese art of mending. Derived from the Japanese word boroboro, meaning “something tattered or repaired,” boro is the practice of reworking and repairing textiles to extend their use. Join Maki Aizawa to learn more about boro and how to use the sashiko stitching method to repair your own garments. Bring an item from your own closet, or practice these techniques on a cotton tote bag.
