Hello, I'm Cathy. I’m based in the English Cotswolds, and I’ve spent thirty years as a very busy children’s book illustrator.
When I saw the inventive, ingenious, modern Kyoto furoshiki it became a growing passion to introduce them to my friends here in the UK. I love the bright colour-pallette, and I love the ease with which they can be tied into something interesting and pretty.
We’re all trying to avoid using plastic bags when we shop – furoshiki are a beautifully designed alternative to a jute or cotton bag.
They’re perfect for gym kit, or for carrying books: their uses are as broad as your imagination!
