With love from Japan

With love from Japan

Q. We got engaged on holiday in Japan and want to add some Japanese touches to our wedding, what can you suggest?

A. Cathy says: Why not carry a pretty furoshiki ring bag on your wedding day? This style, pictured, features a beautiful pattern called konpeitou which resembles confetti, one of the items that these cute bags can hold. It's made with environmentally friendly bamboo handles and is the perfect pick for flowergirls to carry too.

We also supply wedding table favours and bridal party gifts wrapped in authentic furoshiki fabric. We offer many different styles of furoshiki fabric wrapping which can be used to present your gifts and ring bags, and deliver them ready for the special day.

We stock many elegant designs of authentic furoshiki. Most of the styles hold symbolic meaning in Japan, and they are often inspired by kimono patterns. We also design furoshiki here at Zusetsu (I'm a professional children's book illustrator) and they are printed by artisans in Kyoto.
