“Tokyo” Glow in the Dark Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth/Scarf - LINK x Hannah Waldron
Long awaited latest design by Tokyo's LINK Collective “Tokyo” Glow in the Dark Furoshiki is quite special that it was well worth the wait. Designed by UK based artist Hannah Waldron this furoshiki titled TOKYO is full of stories, Hanna expressed her experience from her visit to Tokyo within this 90x90cm square cloth.
What is most special about this furoshiki is that it "glows in the dark" as it has been hand screen printed using special glow in the dark ink specially developed by Link's craftsmen in Japan. The ink absorbs natural light during the day and radiates a soft glow at night. Unlike some other glow in the dark inks, this one used here is soft to the touch so it can be worn comfortably.
