LINK Furoshiki "Hida Express" - Navy
$ 55.00 USD
Printed using traditional methods by craftspeople in a workshop on the outskirts of Tokyo, this multipurpose furoshiki is perfect for gift wrapping, carrying, wearing, or simply displaying. Each design is submitted by a collective of female designers and artists.
From the artist:
“The Hida Express is a limited express train that runs from Toyoma to Takayama through the Japanese Alps. On this journey, all sense of time and orientation seemed to disappear as we snaked, sped, crawled, ambled, rocketed and twisted through mountain upon mountain, every turn revealing rushing rivers and glinting waterfalls only momentarily glanced.” — Hannah Waldron
