jinsei 人生 life | cotton chiffon Furoshiki wrapping cloth | wisdom 知


What makes us come alive, the act of living, the feeling of being alive: all of these deep connective phrases form the literal, and symbolic heart of the Life Collection. This new collection is about this journey to our personal sense of aliveness and is here to inspire each of us to live, fully and completely.

The collection design itself emanates from Tomoko's brush strokes of watercolour - subtle texture and movement bring uniqueness to each design. Cotton chiffon was chosen to create this collection. It's easier to care for than silk but shares the same stunning transparent quality.

Curiosity is the key to unleashing our inner potential. It is the freedom to question, to assess that which is unknown, and to surrender to this ignorance. Thereafter the real adventure commences, towards wisdom, through knowledge.

This furoshiki enwraps a  book - the ultimate symbol of wisdom, but the truth is so much bigger than this. The belief is that any gift wrapped in this Wisdom Furoshiki might start a wondering in someone, that leads to new knowledge, and fundamentally, will enrich their lives in unexpected ways.

The interplay of the colours in this furoshiki expresses the balance between earth, water, and air; a harmony between the elements, to which we can all aspire.

For this furoshiki wrapping, a book was chosen, as featured in Tomoko's book,  Furoshiki by Tomoko Kakita.
