This special artwork, commissioned by Theatres Tilburg was revealed during a concert of Amsterdam’s Sinfonietta. The object can best be described as an enormous space divider that can transform its size as well as its character and as such the entire concert hall. The screen is made out of white fabric and green glow-in-the-dark yarn, and the pattern will keep glowing in the dark even after the beautiful concert hall had turned off its lights – leaving a translucent atmosphere.

The “Dutch museum of bags and purses Hendrikje” has selected the furoshiki shiki for their permanent collection.
Currently the furoshiki shiki is also part of the exhibition “WHY OLD FASHIONED” (interweaving old techniques).
“With this exhibition we prove that handcraft techniques are back in fashion. Well known designers and fashion houses are using traditional techniques such as weaving, embroidery, knitting and crochet.” “…nowadays designers may also choose to use unconventional materials such as cotton, ribbons, plastic bags, plastic wires and even sweet packets”

new: Ipad cover
The Furoshiki shiki series is extended with a new size. It perfectly fits the Ipad, protecting it from any damages; especially nice to mention is: the touch screen still works through the cover so there is no need to unwrap it all the time.
Now our products are also available in China’s tallest skyscraper: the museum shop in the Shanghai World Financial Center.
