Tokyo Furoshiki

by Hannah Waldron

Arriving in Tokyo in that magic time between night and day, our train meanders through a Tetris like metropolis. We become enveloped in a world of blocks, but as we look more we begin to see the traces of times past. Windows appear to flicker on and off, as people come and go, the city that never sleeps welcomes us with its glow.

Glow in the Dark

Our printers approached us with a new technique they’d been working on for applying glow in the dark inks using silk screens. We were intrigued by the potential and asked Hannah to design a furoshiki around the idea — “Tokyo” was the result.

The ink absorbs natural light during the day and radiates a soft glow at night. Unlike some glow in the dark inks, ours is soft to the touch so it can be worn comfortably.

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.

What's Furoshiki?

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.
