Introducing furoshiki 包袱布(風呂敷)介紹

Tokyo Sakura Furoshiki by Hannah Waldron

Featuring Tokyo Sakura Furoshiki by Hannah Waldron 櫻花風呂敷

Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth or fabric traditionally used for gift-wrapping and transporting goods. The word "furoshiki (風呂敷)" refers to both the craft and the cloth itself, which is also known for its elegant hand-painted designs and delicate craft using exquisite materials.

This piece is designed by Hannah Waldron, a UK-based artist and designer specializing in designing and creating research-led unique printed and woven textiles that have an emphasis on storytelling.

"Arriving in Tokyo city in that magic time between night and day, our train meanders through a tetris like metropolis, we become enveloped in a world of blocks, but as we look more we begin to see the traces of times past. Windows appear to flicker on and off, as people come and go, the city that never sleeps welcomes us with its glow." - Hannah Waldron


這件作品是由英國藝術家兼設計師Hannah Waldron設計,她設計的獨特圖案和編織紡織品著重於能夠帶出作品背後故事。

“在晝夜間到達東京市,火車蜿蜒地穿過像俄羅斯方塊般的大都市,我們被城市的高樓大廈包圍,隨著途經的街道,可見得歲月的痕跡。城市裏人們來來往往,家家户户的窗戶透出明亮的燈光,這座不夜城以它的光芒歡迎我們。”Hannah Waldron

The multi-use of furoshiki 包袱布的用途

Originating from Japan, furoshiki has served its multi-purpose use since the 17th century. Since then, the art has spread across the world and widely used as gifts, wearable art, and fashionable accessories to accompany the home and office space.
