Textile and collaborative design work. From Japan to the world and from the world to Japan.

www.thelinkcollective.com

It was co-founded by two friends who first met in Tokyo in 2003 and after many discussions exchanging ideas and dreams, they knew they’d love to work together one day. Now they live at opposite ends of the globe, but with their strong creative backgrounds and an excited desire to merge international design with traditional Japanese production methods, it wasn’t long before LINK was formed.

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.

Once again, the linkcollective's furoshiki are incredibly beautiful in design and the quality of craftsmanship. I use it as a headscarf, neckscarf, bag, wrapping for items of all shapes. I own a few already, and will likely continue purchasing them indefinitely!

It was my first purchase on Etsy and I received the furoshiki with a small whole.. They should have check before shipping. Very disappointed so one star :(.

Thank you very much for your feedback and our apologize for this matter. The hole on the fabric is very rare defective matter and will be sure to improve our quality control with printer. We'll try to keep continue to produce the best quality of Furoshiki by all handmade in Japan. Please let us know question/request anytime. Thank you very much. LINK
