Furoshiki is a eco wrapping cloth to be used in multiple ways: wrapping a yoga mat, bottle, art, cushion, clothes, picnic, baskets, gift-wrapping etc. and as a scarf.

“This design is about the journey out of a city, specifically London. It is an observation of the city’s varying pace, spacing and architecture, and the need one feels to escape beyond the city’s boundaries to nature every once in a while. After creating the design, I discovered that the spiral motif in traditional Japanese art signifies luck, which feels serendipitous. I like the idea of carrying things around wrapped in ideas of adventure and hope for the future.”

Our range of handmade leather straps allow the furoshiki to be easily converted into a simple shoulder bag. It is easily attached, and just as easy to take off, and doesn't damage the cloth in any way. The Furoshiki and strap take up very little space when folded — ideal for lightweight travels, or as a quick extra bag. Straps can be bought as a set with a furoshiki. You can use this strap with any of your Furoshiki!
All purchases come with an explanation card on different ways of tying.
