Selling part of my Mister Freedom Boro Tie collection!

Mister Freedom Boro Tie Scarf with leather cuff in in indigo check, plaid, in its original condition. Vintage item.  Manufactured in Los Angeles by Mister Freedom but the original fabric comes from Japan and is anywhere from 1850's-1930's. The pattern is Japanese plaid, indigo blue and light blue yarn dyed, hints of gold, woven fabric.  Yarn was dyed then handwoven to make the plaid pattern.  Brownish gold selvedge stripe on one side lengthwise, frayed on the other.  Frayed also on both ends.  Mister Freedom "MF" logo stamped is on the bottom of the scarf but is hard to see because it is black ink on dark indigo. Leather cuff is plain brown. One of a kind item. 

Purchased at Mister Freedom in Los Angeles for 229.95

From Mister Freedom: 

"Boro is a Japanese term describing patched up textiles. Repairing and patching was a necessity in early Japan, when new fabric was scarce and expensive.

A garment may have had many lives, often ending up in small pieces to repair a futon cover, monpei pants, yukatafuroshiki
I came across some original folk indigo boro  in the early 1990′s, while in Japan, and have been an admirer since then. Although not originally done for aesthetic reasons, some surviving examples are to me Folk Art at its best.

This is the background story of our little neck ornament here.
We have used some ‘scraps’ of rare antique Japanese indigo textiles to put together our “Boro” Tie (borobolo…get it? and yes, I’ll be here all week…)
The fabrics are assorted, ranging from circa 1850′s~1930′s, and selected from our textile archives. Home spun, cotton, hemp, natural indigo, katazome prints, plaids, solids… We have mixed some red cotton antique japanese fabrics on some of the ties, red being the sugar if indigo is the tea.
We also hand made those leather ring sliders, using vintage recycled leather, some tooled, some plain.

Very limited edition, all one-of-a-kind, none are perfect, hand made in our studio in Los Angeles, CA.
