KAREN SWING

Karen creates wearable art from handwoven fabrics embellished with panels of BORO inspired patch embroidery. Boro fabrics are traditionally created over time when patches are applied to worn areas of a garment, those patches are worn through, and new patches layered on. Time gives boro patching a unique look (pictured in the first image above). karen creates embroidered patches in this fashion, which she then uses to embellish handwoven cloth garments.
