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.

Story

Goodness, fullness, plentitude - this is recognition of the abundance that surrounds us at all times, through our interactions with the planet and people, and is the essence of this furoshiki.

The cacao bean and its corollary - chocolate - with its luscious and nutrient dense qualities, was a natural subject for this wrapping.

From the vibrant colours of the cacao fruit pods themselves to the fulfilling, joyful experience of eating chocolate, this furoshiki is all about the appreciation of simple yet life-affirming experiences. Abundance is accepting the ability to be moved by these moments.

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