Item as advertised. Lightening fast shipping. Two thumbs up.
Fabrics with character, history and a story to tell.
FurugiStar was born of a fascination with the thoughts and feelings evoked by handmade antique fabrics. Textiles with a connection to the artisans and former owners hold a richness that new fabrics just don't possess.
I identify with the Japanese concept of 'yu yo no bi' - beauty in practicality, and 'mottainai' - no waste. These concepts have great relevance to the sustainable fashion movement to which I hope my shop contributes, at least in a small way.
My main interest lies in antique indigo folk textiles or 'boro'. In particular, peasant wear or utilitarian textiles found in the Japanese home of the Edo to Showa era.
All my items are genuine Japanese vintage / antique goods purchased personally in Japan.
