Boro Textiles – Can be seen in the perfection of imperfection

Japan’s patchwork textiles are referred to as “boro”, or ragged, both in Japan and abroad. Boro textiles are usually sewn from 19th and early 20th century rags and patches of indigo dyed cotton ( especially using Jean Cloth – indigo Cotton). The diversity of patches on any given piece is a veritable encyclopedia of hand loomed cotton indigo from old Japan. In most cases, the beautiful arrangement of patches and hand stitches is borne of necessity and happenstance, and was not planned by the maker. Imagine that boro textiles were stitched in the shadows of farmland houses, often at night by the light of one dim andon, on the laps of farm women. This unselfconscious creative process has yielded hand-made articles of soulful beauty, each of which calls upon to be seen and admired as more than the utilitarian cloth they were intended to be.

The Boro textiles offer an insight into the modest lives of those who wore them, as well as the principals of the country in which they lived. The principal of “wabi-sabi” can be seen in the perfection of imperfection, “shibui” in the textiles’ humble nature and “mottainai” as a reflection of a societal effort to avoid waste. As technology evolved and cotton before more accessible, popularity of the Boro process faded, however Boro—The Fabric of Life is fast to note its importances to and impact on contemporary culture have been unforgettable.

你有一樣屬於自己生活不能缺少的「無缺」嗎? # project 2

人生可以分几個階段,有乜嘢係又嬰兒到老去的人也需要呢?食物,水,生活必須品等等⋯⋯除咗物質上面的必須品,所謂「生活必須品」是不是對每一個人都是必須?為何必須?「必須」這個詞彙對人類產生奇妙的感受。是除了物質上的必須之外,還有帶來心靈上的必須品,仲而產生一種莫名而來的不能缺少的習慣。這樣的習慣,牽連的所有周邊的事物及境界也因每個人不同階級的生活上,而形成不同程度的必須品。哈,長話也不説了。總之人沒有那些生活必須品,就不會受到喜怒哀樂的轟炸,那怎樣才算得上經歷人生精髓呢?人總是受周圍,受時刻影響的,抽離的關係,適應變成一種習慣,某些事物事情就變成了一種個人必須品。那種必須,那種彌補,給予那種安穩,那種「無缺」才會令我們學懂得珍惜,維護及享受。是嗎?

你有一樣屬於自己生活不能缺少的「無缺」嗎?

從你的生活上找到「無缺」嗎?
