Folded Paper Furoshiki Black by Lucinda Newton Dunn


Size: 900 x 900 mm (35.4 x 35.4")
Material : 100% cotton satin (lighter weight, smooth cotton)
Handmade in Japan, using Japanese traditional printing techniques.


-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 based on the Japanese tradition of origami.
Continuing with the theme of folding and wrapping, this design depicting a folded piece of paper, explores three dimensionality through line and pattern. At first glance, a quarter of folded furoshiki appears to be decorated with nothing more than bold stripes, but viewed as a whole, it transforms into an intricate and three-dimensional trompe l'oeil.

A black print gives a cool, monochrome look to this design.
2 colour printing. (Black for lines and Beige for background)

-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.
