This pattern was originally featured on the kokka-fabric blog, but has been given a fresh write-up here for our Kokka Fabrics customers - enjoy!
This tote bag was inspired by the traditional Japanese “furoshiki”, a square piece of cloth that can be used as a bag, for gift wrapping, and as decoration. The fabric used to make this bag is from the textile designer “tayutou” and features a modern take on Japanese patterns. This particular pattern is an interpretation of a hydrangea. This stunning bag pattern was designed by tayutou’s designer herself, Ayumi Toda.
