>THE CORIANDER TRAIN STOPPED AT… MYFUROSHIKI

by izabela

The myfuroshiki range of furoshiki is inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric to wrap gifts, make bags & create decorative wall hangings.

I totally fell in love with the idea and Japanese tradition, please check their shop and read what the artist says:

Hello, my name is Michiko Yasue and my sister Olivia and I form myfuroshiki, dedicated to the design and production of fabric wrapping cloths and accessories. The myfuroshiki range of furoshiki is inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric to wrap gifts, make bags & create decorative wall hangings. We offer a range of fabrics including our own designs, hand printed & tie-dyed onto cotton cloths, as well as a selection of gorgeous prints & woven checks that we have sourced. myfuroshiki are fun, fuss-free, affordable & eco-friendly. No tearing, no scissors, no sticky tape, no waste. Just one or two simple knots & even the oddest shaped object can look impressive. Please have a look at our blog at myfuroshiki.blogspot.com for more ideas on how to use furoshiki. We hope you’ll love them as much as we do – it’s the wrapping revolution!

>RED & TURQUISE CUFF…

I made this one recently and this is just one of a kind I think, as I don`t plan to make more (unless I change my mind)

crocheted from bright red cotton yarn with weaved in viskose ribbon yarn (electric blue), lovely handmade button (Hollingdale Designs) I think the colors look perfect together and I love the way it lays on your wrist, there is no sewing at all and the button is attached straight to the ribbon and falling off is almost impossible…
