Inspired by Japanese furoshiki, Vivienne Westwood has teamed up with cosmetics brand Lush to create a limited edition Climate Revolution Knot-Wrap.
“Buy less and buy quality – so that what you buy will last. These Climate Revolution Knot-Wraps can replace wrapping paper and will last a lifetime. More importantly, when you buy them you join an uprising: the Climate Revolution that we need if we are to have a future that we can survive and thrive in.” – Vivienne Westwood
We’re thrilled to see furoshiki taking off in the mainstream like this, especially when it’s for a good cause (and involves Vivienne Westwood!) You can find out more about the project on the Lush website.

We launched 4 new Furoshiki today.
“Dots” by San Francisco based designer Lucinda Newton Dunn and ” The Hida Express” by Stockholm based artist Hannah Waldron.
Dots is the third in a series of designs by Lucinda Newton-Dunn based on the concept of folding. This design forms a three dimensional landscape of shape and line, creating an abstracted pattern of wandering valleys, mountains, ridges, peaks and troughs.
The Hida Express is a limited express train that runs from Toyoma to Takayama through the ‘Japanese Alps’. On this journey, all sense of time and orientation seemed to disappear as we snaked, sped, crawled, ambled, rocketed and twisted through mountain upon mountain, every turn revealing rushing rivers and glinting waterfalls only momentarily glanced.
