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.

Gorgeous furoshiki! Amazing design and quality. The whole experience - from communicating with Kyoko to receiving the lovely package has been so pleasant. I am getting ready for my next purchase. Arigato!
This scarf is gorgeous! The background color is a little more beige than white, but is 100% cotton and I am really happy with the piece. Can't wait to find a frame large enough for it so that it can hang beautifully over my bed.
Beautiful, and very soft cotton. The background color is more creamy than it would seem in the photos, but it is a lovely subtle color. Very pleased! :)
came extremely fast in the post to the UK. Really happy with this scarf. I think it is beautiful
