<100% of sales will go to Japanese Disaster Relief Until the end of March>
For my design, I took inspiration from the idea of wrapping a wide range of objects and the different folding techniques and shapes each one would create. I also wanted it to act like a visual shopping list, the pictures reminding you of things you need to buy, then wrap in the furoshiki and carry home

★What's Furoshiki? ★
Furoshiki (風呂敷, furoshiki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be used in multiple ways, for bundling or gift-wrapping all sorts of things - from lunch boxes or books, to watermelons and bottles of wine. You could even use it as a bag, a scarf, a baby blanket or even a wall hanging. One beautiful piece of cloth and the list is endless. You decide!
