We’re always on the lookout for creative ways to wrap a gift. We found these garlands that we think will greatly embellish a package. It is sold in the Japanese handmade market site Minne.
The shop name is M’s Craft and as typical of Japanese sites the creator’s name is not listed. The items are made from cultivated in-house flowers carefully chosen for their colors and picked as per season and occasion.

Love these simple sophisticated Nordic patterns created by Finish industrial designer Juho Viilasalo. He is currently living in Japan and is the chief designer for Propex Design, a design consultancy company in Osaka. He is also the owner and chief designer at Design Viitasalo Ltd. in Finland. The patterns have been used in smart phone cases and furoshiki (wrapping cloth) textile for the Japanese brand, Kotonowa.
