About Furoshiki :
Furoshiki (風呂敷, fu-rosh-ki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be used in multiple ways, for bundling or gift-wrapping all sorts of things. We think this particular lighter-weight furoshiki works well for more delicate wrapping and perfectly as a scarf, and it softens up the more you wear and wash it. One simple and beautiful piece of cloth and the list is endless. Tie it and see!
Designers words :
This design is about the journey out of a city, specifically London. It is an observation of the city's varying pace, spacing and architecture, and the need one feels to escape beyond the city's boundaries to nature every once in a while.
After creating the design, I discovered that the spiral motif in traditional japanese art signifies luck, which feels serendipitous. I like the idea of carrying things around wrapped in ideas of
adventure and hope for the future. -Hannah
Printed in "Mustard" and Royal Blue on a snowy white background, the design can be used all year round.

Printing process :
Each of our products has been hand printed in Japan, using traditional printing techniques. We are working with a great printing company called Chiffonez in Tokyo, who specialize in the printing of furoshiki. To make sure we get the best results possible, we keep a close dialogue with the printers, retaining a good balance between our ideas and their invaluable knowledge.
