Cute to the core, yet still so stylish in design, we love this Japanese wrapping cloth featuring cats and birds peeking out from waves of vibrant yellow and red. Originally a chusen stencil-dye textile design by artisans Takeshi Matsunaga and Chie Takai, it's a beautiful example of a contemporary take on traditional techniques.
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.
