FUROSHIKI - KYO-KARAKUSA GREEN LARGE
Regular price £35.00
A symbol of prosperity and longevity, kyo-karakusa came to Japan via the Silk Road to become a traditional pattern. Named “winding plant” for its arabesque swirls and tiny leaves, it is still a popular motif of furoshiki wrapping cloths.
Bold, traditional and yet so graphically modern, it’s simply a beautiful way to add an extra gift of good luck to any present.

In 2005, the Kyoto-based Musubi opened its first store dedicated to furoshiki in Tokyo, but it has been designing and making the wrapping cloths for decades. Now working with various other furoshiki makers in Kyoto and collaborating with numerous designers and illustrators, it produces an eclectic range of vibrant patterns and styles — from traditional to geometrically modern. Every design takes in consideration types of fabric and printing processes, and if not made by the company itself, is carefully matched with the ideal maker.
Size: 70 x 70 cm (can gift wrap medium boxes or a wine bottle)
Made in Japan.
