Yay, Link’s winter furoshiki are out! Please take a look …
My latest design ‘Dots‘ is available in blue, black and rust. The design continues along the theme of folding and wrapping. Hours of paper folding and experimenting went on behind the scenes, which was a lot of fun … perhaps I’ll share some sketches at a later date.
Also launched this winter season is ‘The Hida Express‘, another beautifully intricate design by Hannah Waldron (designer of the Maze furoshiki, Winter 2012) based on a train journey she took through the Japanese Alps.

Hermes is not quite my style, however today I did enjoy looking at their site – especially where they show video clips of their craftspeople working on certain products. There is something so satisfying about watching a skilled pair of hands working, almost automatically, methodically and seamlessly on something.

Some more pictures of the lovely little jinbei my friend Keiko made out of some of my fabric, beautifully modeled by little A!

Osborn Shoes – designed in Brooklyn by Carla Venticinque-Osborn & Aaron Osborn, these very unique shoes are handcrafted by artisans in Guatemala City. The fun and beautiful fabrics range from hand blocked Kente cotton fabric, to thick woven cotton from India and almost certainly some Guatemalan fabrics in there too. Wow.
I’m not a big fan of tie-dye, but I think this sweatshirt by Aiko is beautiful.
