This scarf is inspired by the process and materials used in the traditional Japanese dyeing technique, ‘Edo Komon’. Beginning as a fashion amongst the Samurai families, Edo Komon began to be dyed on textiles during the Muromachi era.

Myths from several regions associate birds with the beginning of the world. Birds appear in some myths as early divers. An earth diver is an animal that plunged to the bottom of the primeval sea and bought up mud from which the earth was formed. Legends of the Buriat and Samoyed people of Siberia feature birds as earth divers and this is his interpretation of the earth diver.

Inspired by a beautiful journey through Morocco, and the designs are derived from our images of the traditional patterns, tiles, and traditional Riad houses we encountered. The abstract print forms a dramatic swirl of blues, pastels, with a splash of brights, celebrating the atmosphere, vibrant colours and texture of the location.

Furoshiki (風呂敷, fu-rosh-ki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be used in multiple ways, for bundling or gift-wrapping all sorts of things. We think this particular lighter-weight furoshiki works well for more delicate wrapping and perfectly as a scarf, and it softens up the more you wear and wash it. One simple and beautiful piece of cloth and the list is endless. Tie it and see!
