FUROSHIKI - MODERN GIRL BEIGE LARGE
Regular price £35.00
We love the inspiration behind the multicoloured dot pattern of Musubi’s Modern Girl furoshiki wrapping cloth. “Modern girls” were Taisho era (1912-26) women who embraced Western influences at the brink of Japan’s modernization. The vanguard of fashion, they dressed in kimono in pop colours and graphic motifs, reveling in personal expression and independence.
Bright and fun, the blue, grey, pink, red and yellow dots on this furoshiki represent so much more than meets the eye.

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.
