Sri Threads

Vintage Patched Boro Kimono


Sri Threads is one of NYC’s hidden gems: a boutique collection of rare Japanese and Indian textiles inside an apartment building in Brooklyn’s Greenpoint neighborhood. This boro kimono dates back to the mid to late 19th century, woven in a pattern resembling a basket weave. The beauty of this vintage piece, however, comes from the loving way it’s been patched and mended over time. A true one-of-a-kind piece that has a mysterious history.
