Boro reversible cape
Handwoven cotton reversible cape with upcycled patchwork detail. This cape is part of our Upcycle Series.
This cape uses a patchwork placement of fabrics. We follow the concept of BORO in the studio. The Japanese term “Boro” loosely means ‘too good to waste’. Ever since the brand ‘Paromita Banerjee’ was conceived in 2009, we never threw away any of our waste fabrics, each of which were either handwoven or handprinted or hand-dyed by our artisans. The simple idea started with the fact that since we make our own fabrics and we see our sketches being conceived into fabric yardages, by our weaver clusters, most times it becomes too sentimental to throw them away. It was a decision to reduce waste and utilize the remnants of our past collections and fabrics to make newer products.
Length of the cape : 36 inches
Length of sleeves : 3/4th sleeves of 17-18 inches depending on size.
