Textiles hold memory. The clothes we wear for warmth, protection, adornment, seem to become a part of our bodies. Yet unlike the body, you can remove the clothing. You can outgrow it. The cloth can become tattered and impractical. When we remove our clothing we begin to see these cloths symbolically. They represent time in a way that no other object we own can—they become markers for a moment in ones life—a moment in our body.

There are many examples of repurposing clothing across the globe. Boro is a technique found in Japan. Pictured below is an example of a Bodoko “made from layers of hemp and cotton scraps sewed down onto a worn hemp kimono base, (it) was used during childbirth so that the newborn might be blessed with the ancestral protection and life force passed down in the fabric from generation to generation.”
