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 – from lunch boxes or books, to watermelons and bottles of wine. You could even tie it into a handbag or use it as a scarf, a baby blanket or even a wall hanging. One simple and beautiful piece of cloth and the list is endless. Tie it and see!
The design is based on the functional aspect of the furoshiki; the idea of wrapping and folding. At first glance it appears as a bold and abstract pattern but when seen as a whole, it becomes apparent that the stripes depict manipulated and tied fabric.

Printed in red gives a bold boost of colour, printed in grey (Also available in grey : http://www.etsy.com/listing/90188561/link-x-lucinda-newton-dunn-grey-2012) has a cooler more relaxed feel.
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.
LINK is a unique and challenging project conducted long-distance, entirely via the internet, by busy women with a world-wide vision. Collaborating with a select global network of artists and designers, it aims to cross cultures and generations by creating beautiful and functional products, from Japan to the world and from the world to Japan.
