Designed by Takeshi Matsunaga and Chie Takai, Japanese chusen stencil dyeing textile artisans, this pretty pattern of fluttering white hummingbirds, bright yellow flowers and swirls of leaves is so uplifting. Great for wrapping small everyday items and little gifts, the Musubi Cohare collection features cheerful designs, all based on stencil dyeing.
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.
