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.
The entire shirt is made with a natural soft touch cotton in the classic boro patchwork style. With this shirt, the beauty of boro fabric is emphasised through the weaving techniques used to construct it.
Independent local label GRAYE fuses tradition with a modern touch.
