I’m in love with these hand printed Japanese Furoshiki’s by The Link Collective. Furoshiki originate from Japanese culture which promotes caring for the environment by reducing waste with an eco-friendly re-useable wrapping cloth. Using similar techniques to origami Furoshiki’s can be used for gift wrapping, grocery shopping or bundling whatever you like.
The Link Collective collaborate with international artists and designers for their designs. One of my favourite designs is the Stripe Furoshiki by Lucinda Newton Dunn. News via Link Collective’s twitter is that the next exciting collaboration will be with Leah Duncan. See her beautiful work here.
See here for illustrated guides showing different ways to fold a furoshiki and buy them here in Australia, yay! from Upon a fold, Mr Kitly and Safari Living.
