“This design is about the journey out of a city, specifically London. It is an observation of the city’s varying pace, spacing and architecture, and the need one feels to escape beyond the city’s boundaries to nature every once in a while. After creating the design, I discovered that the spiral motif in traditional Japanese art signifies luck, which feels serendipitous. I like the idea of carrying things around wrapped in ideas of adventure and hope for the future.”

Contemporary designs by artists from around the world give a modern edge to the traditional furoshiki, and look stunning when worn as a scarf. Each design is hand printed onto premium cotton giving a soft feel and elegant drape, then the edges are carefully hand rolled and sewn.
Our range of handmade straps allow the furoshiki to be easily converted into a simple shoulder bag — ideal for lightweight travels, or as a quick extra bag. Straps can be bought individually, or as a set with a furoshiki.
The Japanese have been perfecting the art of wrapping furoshiki since the 17th century. Use one of the many traditional folding techniques to elegantly wrap anything from books to bottles and make any gift extra special.
Turn your furoshiki into a beautiful artwork by hanging it with our hinoki wood display pole system
Furoshiki (pronounced fu·rosh·ki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be used for bundling or gift-wrapping, carried as a bag or worn as a scarf. Our lighter-weight furoshiki works particularly well for delicate wrapping and softens up the more you use and wash it.
Each of our products is hand printed in Japan, using traditional printing techniques. We work closely with a great furoshiki printing company just outside of Tokyo, keeping a close dialogue with them to retain a good balance between our ideas and their invaluable knowledge.
