Boro Boro with GRAYE

In GRAYE’s F/W 2017 Collection, they translated their zen lifestyle to their apparels. One that caught my eye was the Boro Boro Textiles. Boro literally translates to rags, and it is the art of patching multiple pieces of rags together. The Boro culture was born through the values of “mottanai” or “too good to waste”. Notice that these beautiful textiles are all in the shade of the natural indigo dye.
