Boro Inspired Workshop with Wendy Saclier

January 19 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm



Bring your old jeans and give them a new life!

Boro Boro in Japanese means ‘worn out’. It is a Japanese tradition of saving, recycling and stitching.

Like most forms of stitching layers of fabric together it evolved as a practical and functional solution
to provide warmth in clothing when textiles like cotton and hemp cloth were scarce.

These old pieces of clothing, jackets, kimonos and bed covers from Japan are highly valued and very appealing.

In this world of discarding and disposal it is refreshing to conserve used and worn textiles in this traditional way – using a simple running stitch.


  • Used jeans ( or other item of clothing)
  • Scraps of fabric ( used and or new)
  • Perle 8 thread and Embroidery Needles ( 3 – 9) OR Sashiko thread and needles
  • Thimble
  • Usual Hand sewing equipment – pins, pin cushion, scissors, and a ‘quick unpick ‘( to open seams)
