Washi World

Setting up for Surtex is certainly all about cutting, gluing and taping … but, here is another kind of tape we played with when we weren’t taping artwork to our booth walls.


I’ve never known a Heck who didn’t like a craft project. At Anthropologie in Chelsea Market this year (we always have to go—for research purposes of course) the theme was washi tape. There was even a crafting table with rolls of tape and blank boxes and ornament cards to decorate.

Notice a family resemblance?



In particular, we thought this little box with the folded flower top and tiny legs—which unfolds completely flat—was especially intriguing.


It’s all these little great ideas that keep us coming back year after year—for research purposes of course. And maybe a dress. Or two…
