Wrap up your troubles and enhance your eco-lifestyle with Furoshiki!
Tamakurya Boutique is a forward thinking business partnership that fuses Japanese traditions, practices and creativity with Ankara wax print fabric.
We, Takako & Maurya, are craft-loving mums and we also create beautiful objects and fashion wear that are not impactful on the environment. We source a variety of hand-made kimonos and make products including hairbands, ties and garments by re-using vintage kimono fabric.
Tak and I both live by and bring our children up by the ‘Mottainai’ principle which simply means not to waste. This is the feeling of regret for a missed opportunity, to waste a resource or walk past something that could be valuable in some other way. We’re following this path in our small way and we believe that our kimono creations and our furoshiki can be adopted to our modern needs very easily and beautifully.
Tamakurya also produce Furoshiki — sustainable and reusable eco-wraps— fusing Ankara textiles and Japanese practices and traditions. We teach people how to utilise fabric as an alternative to single-use materials. We run workshops which give an insight into this 2000 year-old Japanese practice of fabric wrapping and its history and development.
A Furoshiki is a single square piece of cloth which, when folded in ways that we teach, becomes a functional and adaptable tool for wrapping, carrying and storing a wide-variety of objects; from delicate glass bottles and gifts, to books and larger household objects. Furoshiki are reusable and an eco-friendly alternative to gift-wrapping paper or other disposable materials, which are often not recyclable and disposed of in landfill or by incineration. Furoshiki wrapping is a multi-purpose and useful way we can adapt our modern needs without lasting damage to our precious planet and the habitats dependent upon it.
Enhance your eco-lifestyle with our vintage kimono hairbands and furoshiki to reduce your plastic usage. Adopt the Mottainai principle. Waste less.
