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.
Stripes was created by artist Lucinda Newton-Dunn: “The design is based on the functional aspect of the furoshiki; the idea of wrapping and folding. At first glance it appears as a bold and abstract pattern but when seen as a whole, it becomes apparent that the stripes depict manipulated and tied fabric.”
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.
