Like drifting snowflakes, white apricot blooms float across vibrant red on one side of Musubi's Apricot Pine & Bamboo furoshiki wrapping cloth. Flip it over, and you'll uncover a striking geometric interpretation of pine and bamboo bark in deep navy.
We love how this reversible furoshiki brings together lucky traditional Japanese motifs — apricot blooms for happiness, bamboo for luck and pine for longevity — in two very different contemporary designs.
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.
