I saw this video posted I think, on Facebook. I tried to find who posted it, but alas, I lost the information, so I am unable to give credit to the person who posted it initially. It's only a minute long, but it takes you from cotton in the field to the finished garment. Rather fun.
Finally, I wanted to share this book. A friend of mine shared her copy with me and I fell in love with it. Now the quest is on to find a copy for myself. The title is "Boro, The Rags and Tatters From The Far North of Japan." You can find it here, http://www.amazon.com/Boro-Rags-Tatters-North-Japan/dp/4757215967/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1361282243&sr=1-1&keywords=boro. The problem though is that the cheapest copy is $54.50, so I have placed it on my wish list. I can be very patient, it may take a while, but I'll find one at a much more reasonable price. It will be mine!!!
Below are a couple of pictures from the book. The first picture I found interesting just for the shape of the pants.
Just wanted to share a few things that I found to be quite interesting.
Have a wonderful day!
