Original Furoshiki, a wrapping cloth created by young creator's fresh sensitivity

The Japan Foundation, which is hosting the Yokohama Triennale, cooperated with the embassies of France, Mexico, and Canada, which are some of the countries participating in Yokohama Triennale’s National Day, and collected designs for furoshiki (wrapping cloths) from students that will bear the future of design in Japan with the fusion of Japan and each of those countries as the design theme. From the 120 entries, a total of 3 winning designs were chosen, 1 each from France,
Mexico and Canada, and used for JF original furoshiki.
