FUROSHIKI - REVERSIBLE APRICOT BLOOMS RED-GREEN
Regular price £18.00
Here’s a little known fact: The Japanese plum, known as ume, is actually more closely related to the apricot. This reversible cotton furoshiki wrapping cloth, designed by Musubi, is covered in white ume blooms, a traditional symbol of luck and the first inklings of spring.
Sakura cherry blossoms often get the limelight, but the ume can be just as stunning. Set against vivid red, it becomes a festive bold graphic; against a leafy green, it’s delicate and gentle. Double the wrapping, double the joy.
We have many other just as striking designs, to see more, visit the full furoshiki collection here.
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.
