Sustainability, "zero waste" and the beauty of imperfection go hand in hand with the Boro and Sashiko techniques, which extend the life of clothes with something that never fails to be unique.
Textile recycling has a long history in Japan. From the 17th to the 19th century, fabrics were expensive and scarce for the working class. Worn-out fabrics known as 'boro', meaning rags, are strengthened and attached to the original garment with sashiko running stitches in contrasting threads. Often, several pieces are piled up with simple stitches in geometric patterns in order to make the fabric warmer.
In this workshop you will use visible repairs with boro and sashiko techniques to turn your worn-out jeans and/or recycled denim fabrics into something unique and valuable.
