Miura pays homage to Japan’s boro technique in latest gear collection
Welcome to Gimme That, a GOLF.com column where we’ll highlight one notable item we think you might like. Whether it’s an article of clothing, an intriguing electronic device or anything in between, we want to share these items with you because they’ve generated a bit of chatter by our water cooler (or, these days, on our Slack channel). So sit back, scroll down and keep up with the latest gear golf has to offer.
All of Miura’s irons and wedges are hand-forged in Japan. They’re super proud of their heritage, and have been known to uplift and celebrate Japanese culture through their soft goods and accessories capsules. The latest capsule is no different.
Their newest gear — a hoodie, t-shirt, hat, umbrella and divot tool/ball marker set — features Miura’s “M” logo and a boro-inspired pattern. Traditionally, boro is made by quilting indigo textiles together to create a unique pattern that reinforces the fabric. It’s a time-honored quilting method that was invented in Japan and is now practiced globally. These accessories mimic a traditional boro color palate and stitching technique.
We’ve linked a few of our favorite accessories below, but you can head over to Miuragolf.com to view the complete collection.
