An essential piece of our luxury silk travel collections are the ddoo collective silk boarding packs. Offering a packing solution to ensure that your delicate silk garments are perfectly prepared for your next journey. Having taken inspiration from the Japanese furoshiki, we explore the origins, practicality and beauty of our silk boarding packs.
What is a furoshiki?A furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that is used to transport goods such as clothing and gifts. Usually formed from a square of cloth, furoshiki come in a wide range of sizes, patterns and styles. This simple piece of cloth offers a sturdy and functional way to transport a wide variety of precious goods from silk kimonos to bundles of fresh fruit. The square of cloth is tied in simple knots to secure the contents and offer an easy and effortless way to transport many different items.
Our silk boarding packs draw on inspiration from the Japanese furoshiki for a practical and elegant way to store our silk garments with ease. This ensures that the pieces are kept safe and crease free, whilst not taking up any more precious room than necessary.
Economy of spaceEconomy of space is a Japanese philosophy that delves into the way we use space, from the areas within our homes to the precious partitions of our suitcases. The economy of space philosophy encourages you to think about the items you prioritise most, to use your space sparingly and efficiently.
The Japanese also support the theory that when you arrange your personal items, you arrange your mind. This leaves your mind clean and clear, ready to gain fresh knowledge from the adventures you embark upon. Maximise the potential of your space and minimise the waste with our chic boarding packs.
