Often together at night parents & kids would sleep together under the bodoko to keep warm. In the early 1900s cotton fabric was hard to come by and people can't afford to throw away any. The villager would reuse the cotton fabric by patching them over and over again. This piece has a balance of aesthetic artfully constructed patchwork which gives it the feel and years of hard wear, tattered ground and extensive sashiko repair. It is one of a kind item that hardly comes available to the market anymore.
It is a unique piece for display at home or office for decoration which creates an incredible atmosphere. Condition: overall excellent boro condition.
