Large blue boro with 'doro' patches

395.00

A beautiful, harmonic assembly of blue and brown patches that have been stitched together as a light blanket. The side that used to be the outside oozes of harmony, while the inside is an artful patchwork creation of various fabrics. This cloth is only one layer, which is quite unusual and gives it a marvelous, thin quality. If hung up, sunlight shines through the fabric.
