LINK Furoshiki “Tokyo” - Glow in the Dark

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:
“Arriving in Tokyo city in that magic time between night and day, our train meanders through a Tetris like metropolis, we become enveloped in a world of blocks, but as we look more we begin to see the traces of times past. Windows appear to flicker on and off, as people come and go, the city that never sleeps welcomes us with its glow.” — Hannah Waldron

This style features a special technique that allows for glow in the dark inks using silk screens. The ink absorbs natural light during the day and radiates a soft glow at night. Unlike some glow in the dark inks, it is soft to the touch so it can be worn comfortably.
