Travel into the wild with these meticulously designed furoshiki (wrapping cloth) by artist duo Takeshi Matsunaga and Chie Takai of Kata Kata. We imagine this is a whale mama and child slowly making their way to warmer waters.Β 

Both katazome and chusen methods are used to create this furoshiki. Katazome is a complicated stenciling and printing process involving natural materials such as persimmon juice, seaweed, water, and wind. Chusen is a Meiji-era technique involving hand-dying each furoshiki to produce varied and unique results.

Because of its large size, this furoshiki works great as a wrapping cloth, bag, tablecloth, or hang these special pieces on your walls for festive animal-themed decorations.

Please note: colors mayΒ run during the first couple of washes, so be sure to wash separately with cold water to avoid color bleeding.Β
