THE FUROSHIKI BED - California Style
Designed and sewn by Ambatalia “The Furoshiki Bed” is the only bedding system of its kind. Inspired by the Japanese art of tying knots in a simple cloth to be useful in a multitude of ways. Our beds are “made” using a flat sheet to replace the fitted sheet inspired by this art form. By simply tying a knot at each corner and tucking it under the mattress this knot will form a pleat at the corner which holds the sheet in place creating the fitted sheet. Furoshiki inspires us to be creative with what we have at hand, to be resourceful by moving towards non- disposable solutions in this overwhelmingly disposable age.
Ambatalia’s Furoshiki bedding is made with a careful selection of authentic textiles: For now Texas grown organic cotton, reclaimed Irish linen sheeting, vintage textiles, reclaimed and local plant-dyed textiles to bring color to the collection. All of these fabrics are durable, beautiful, and comfortable and are of critical importance, culturally and environmentally. The design of all the pieces are simple, focusing on the fabrics and the heirloom quality of sewing.
OUR BEDDING IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN FULL AND QUEEN SIZES AT THIS TIME- Thank you.
