Furoshiki (pronounced fu·rosh·ki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be worn as a scarf, carried as a bag or used for bundling or gift-wrapping. This lighter-weight furoshiki softens up the more you use and wash it. Each furoshiki made by Link is crafted by hand in Japan, printed manually by an experienced team of craftsmen onto premium Japanese cotton. The edges are carefully hand rolled and sewn for a polished finish.
Dots is designed by collaborating artist Lucinda Newton-Dunn, and is 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.”
Link produces contemporary furoshiki textiles through a network of artists and designers from around the world. Link aims to cross cultures and generations by creating beautiful and functional products, merging international design with traditional Japanese production methods.
