The Link Collective

Tokyo-based designer Kyoko Bowskill set up ‘The Link Collective’ with an aim to revive and preserve the supposedly outdated printing technique, the making of Furoshiki textiles, as there has been a resurgence of interest in traditional craft methods across the globe. Considered as an eco-friendly method of wrapping items, the Japanese age-old Furoshiki is enjoying a renaissance as Kyoko is trying to build bridges between international artisan printmakers by inviting them to create patterns which will then be hand printed on traditional Japanese cotton wrapping cloths by a family-owned business with over 50 years of experience in producing Furoshiki textiles in Japan.

From groceries to gifts, the Furokishi is a very eco-friendly method of wrapping and transporting goods and items. So far, the design collaborators include Lucinda Newton-Dunn, Hannah Waldron, Leah Duncan, Tilman Zitzmann and Hennie Haworth.
