Folded Paper Furoshiki

I knew this had to be from Japan the moment I saw it!  The very cute furoshiki created by thelinkcollective are handmade in Japan, using Japanese traditional printing techniques. 

-Designers words-
This design is based on the Japanese tradition of origami. 
Continuing with the theme of folding and wrapping, this design depicting a folded piece of paper, explores three dimensionality through line and pattern. At first glance, a quarter of folded furoshiki appears to be decorated with nothing more than bold stripes, but viewed as a whole, it transforms into an intricate and three-dimensional trompe l'oeil.
