This listing is for a well-worn, quite tattered, authentic boro futon blanket. It is not a futon cover, which would have a slit in the back to insert the futon. This is a multi-layered patched boro blanket.

As the photos show, there are many, many patches, yards and yards of hand-stitching, and layers of cotton fabric. Several distressed areas show the backside of the other side, and two areas are open through all layers. There's even a cut out section in one corner where the edges seemed burned.

This piece is a grand example of austere patching (boro) and offers dozens of examples of layering and patchwork for artisans who encorporates boro in their work.

There are a few silk patches but the rest is all indigo cotton.

approximately 69" (5'9") square
