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 :
I lived in the beautiful city of Stockholm for 2 years where I attended the art school Konstfack to do a masters in Textiles. Nothing could have prepared me for the winter that I was to experience in my first year there.
From November until April snow lay thick on the ground, and the sun’s appearance to the day was fleeting. Then something happened in May that was entirely magical. Summer arrived in Stockholm, and almost instantaneously the city and the people within were transformed into their summer selves.
A lush explosion of energy and colour burst forth in nature, and in particular I noticed how the waterways of the Stockholm archipelago came alive.
This design celebrates the wonderfully unique Swedish summer and documents my observations from the vantage point of a kayak from the many expeditions I made on the water in the summer of 2014.
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.
