Spruce Up Your Table Or Desk With Kiriko’s Vintage Boro Zokins

Get your space together with Kiriko‘s Vintage Boro Zokins. What’s a Zokin, you ask? It’s a versatile piece of patched and sewn together fabric- traditionally sourced and created in Japan. The word can be translated as a dust rag, with the Japanese creating Zokin from many things like worn down clothes, and otherwise useless fabrics. Like a bandana, there are 101 uses for a Zokin – – Placemat, coaster, lining, or protecting surfaces in the home –it’s up to you to decide how to use these wabi-sabi beauties. Maybe don’t blow your nose on them, though.

Every piece is one of a kind and sourced from antique/vintage fabrics from the late 1800s-early 1900s, and are all in their original condition, so you’ll be owning a piece of history with your Zokin.

Available for $28-98 at Kiriko
