Boro

Boro | 16/12/2016

In our endless crusade to experiment with new concepts and ideas, this time we have cooked a limited edition of one-of-a-kind Boro Panhead blue jeans. Boro, is a term from early Japan and means something tattered or repaired. Boro textiles represent essential principles of traditional Japanese ethics and aesthetics such as the favoring of the sober and modest or shibui; the acceptance of transience and imperfection or wabi-sabi; and, of course, regret about any waste, or mottainai.

Wrecked and abused till exhaustion, we repaired these special Panheads, using rare and antique Japanese fabrics, ranging from circa 1850’s~1930’s, we have been collecting over the years in our different trips to Japan. Combining Katazome and Shibori scraps, with Sashiko sewing techniques, we’ve embossed a creative and individual flare to each garment, showing us the value of time and care, not money.

Each El Solitario® Boro pair of jeans is by definition absolutely unique, made by hand in our studio, and should be valued as highly collectable wearable art.

From the depths of the Galician forests, El Solitario has been challenging the status quo since its birth in 2010; Known both for the emotional power and raw energy of our motorcycles and the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of our collections.

Fundamental to our culture is the juxtaposition of contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. We are not a fashion brand nor a motorcy- cle company. El Solitario is just the umbrella under which we develop our creative ethos. All parts influence the others and only dance to the beats of our own drums.

Riding motorcycles is the epitome of speed, a genuine modern revelation. Innumerable great men and women have succumbed to the allure, and felt the fire in their bellies, propelling through adversity on nothing more than a skinny-motored artifact. Nonetheless shredding any semblance of mundanity from their lives, El Solitario, connects with the sense of awareness and strength that riders develop due to the inherent risk, fragility and outsider spirit that defines their way of life.

El Solitario is the vanguard of the new global motorcycle movement that is combining motorcycles, art, clothing and cultural events. We are not ashamed to be educated or sophisticated, nor to be interested in more than the stats of racing or the posturing of faux outlaw bikers. We manufacture and sell products no one dares to make and enjoy treading a tight rope. Our strategy and product line is disruptive and captivating. We dictate trends, we do not follow them. Ask anybody.
