Usher in good luck with the Musubi Gourd and Dragon Scales reversible furoshiki wrapping cloth. There are two contrasting sides to this textile, making it doubly useful as an eco-friendly gift wrap. Its lime green side features traditional gourds, symbols of good health and prosperity, while the navy blue side of modern tessellating triangles represents dragon scales.
Legend has it Japan's grand dragons would shed scales to grow larger and more powerful, making them bearers of good fortune, strength and regeneration. What better way to show someone how much you value their friendship and love.
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.
