For the Furoshiki pattern competition I wanted to focus on a plant that is very important Japanese culture. I chose the delicate Cherry Blossom. Every Spring since the seventh century, the blooming of the cherry blossoms have been celebrated with a Cherry Blossom Festival. If we are not more concientious about our use of materials, the cherry trees all environmental life is in danger. I believe that the Cherry Blossom would be a good incentive for the Japanese and everyone to be more eco-friendly.
