Boro embroidery was born from necessity and used as a way to lengthen the life of textiles and garments for the poverty stricken Japanese farmers and others. The layering and continual embroidery created a story within the garments, though sadly many were destroyed.


The hand embroidery using natural coloured threads, beige and shades of white, creates a delicate and interesting texture juxtaposing raised and smooth areas on the fabric base. It is all hand stitched with attention to detail and the emphasis on the Boro embroidery technique, celebrating and treasuring it. The overlapping circles create a feeling of calmness and tranquillity as the meaning and history is contemplated.


Boro'd circles is for those who enjoy artwork inspired by historical influence combined with a contemporary twist. The neutral colour palette ensures that it will work in any room of the home including study, lounge, bedroom or entrance hall and is ideal for gifting for many occasions.


The black frames measures 25 x 35 centimetres approximately, with a white mount to elevate the details the inside of which measures 11.5 x 23 centimetres. Boro'd Circles can be wall hung or displayed on a shelf or mantelpiece.
