We are excited to introduce the two new Japanese made furoshiki by LINK Collective, "Dots" and "The Hida Express".
'Dots' is the third in a series of designs by Lucinda Newton-Dunn based on the concept of folding. This design forms a three dimensional landscape of shape and line, creating an abstracted pattern of wandering valleys, mountains, ridges, peaks and troughs. Available in 3 colours, Black, Rust, and Blue.
Another new design, The Hida Express designed by a London-based designer Hannah Waldron is inspired by the a limited express train of the same name that runs from Toyoma to Takayama through the 'Japanese Alps'. Hannah says "on this journey, all sense of time and orientation seemed to disappear as we snaked, sped, crawled, ambled, rocketed and twisted through mountain upon mountain, every turn revealing rushing rivers and glinting waterfalls only momentarily glanced".
Furoshiki is a piece of printed cotton textile that can be used in so many ways. Furoshiki is generally and traditionally used for wrapping and carrying things but this unique and stylish design furoshiki can also be used for table cloth, picnic mat, scarf, or as a carrying bag using simple furoshiki folding techniques(also you can watch it here on youtube).
You can make a furoshiki bag using easy-to-attach leather straps which also have just been restocked with all 4 colours being available!
Hope you enjoy the art of Furoshiki, tie it, wrap it, hung it, wear it and so on!
