Intelligence Japanese Boro & Aizome Traditions

Local SoHo gallery and showroom Les Ateliers Courbet is known for presenting beautiful objects, furniture, textiles, lighting and home collections from all over the world. With attention to craftsmanship and design, the space serves as a showcase for centuries-old masters and contemporary artists alike.

Now until the end of September, Les Ateliers Courbet is presenting vintage boro pieces alongside contemporary indigo textiles. The pieces embody the tradition and significance of textile in Japanese culture, with some of the garments dating back 200 years.

A highlight of the exhibit includes a section of a mid-late 19th century indigo dyed cotton boro futon cover. (Boro is a class of Japanese textiles that have been mended or patched together.) The cloth components were hand woven from handspun cotton yarns and hand-stitched with hemp.

Select furniture pieces by Milanese designer Mario Milana also grace the exhibit; the texture and details in his chairs are the perfect clean contemporary counterpart to the rugged appeal of the textiles.
