Here at Musubism, we are passionate about making the world a little bit smaller by sharing culture, history and tradition. Our furoshiki is one such traditional Japanese cloth that we want to share with the world—and for you to enjoy using every day.
Our company name is a mixture of Japanese and English. We combined the Japanese word musubi, which means a knot that ties or to get connected with people, with the English suffix –ism, which often signifies a belief.
Our name encapsulates our company’s worldview. If we can get connected through something as tying a knot on a furoshiki, then we can connect as humans together.
All of our Furoshiki are hand-painted using a Japanese traditional screen print technique. Coloration is sensitive to humidity and climate, so all of our work is done with careful consideration given to the weather forecast. This is the video of how our craftsmen are meticulous, applying colors so as to not deviate from the pattern. Our Furoshiki doesn’t allow for even a millimeter of deviation–having that sense of distance between neighboring points–is truly a super-human feat.
Our workers technique is far more accurate than any printing machine!
