Block print on cotton 700×700 mm
Limited Edition

For my second collaboration with Kiki’s Cocoa, I designed and hand-printed these limited edition Halloween bandanas. The project was initially inspired by furoshiki – Japanese art of cloth wrapping.

The characters I designed were laser-etched onto linoleum blocks and hand stamped (block printed) on the cotton fabric. The completed bandanas were also used as the packaging – wrapping the boxes of chocolates as they were delivered to Kiki’s Cocoa Club members.

Also, here’s your chance to peek behind the curtain to see how this project got made in the Making of Kiki’s Cocoa: Halloween Edition.
