Sashiko is a simple method of mending clothes and is a technique that was derived from everyday life using thread and needles.

Since it is washable, it is recommended for everyday wrapping such as lunch box wrapping or eco-bag wrapping.

About furoshiki

Wrapping cloths, known as furoshiki, are part of Japanese culture and tradition.

They are a fabulous, zero waste way of wrapping anything from produce and wine bottles to clothes & gifts.

Furoshiki embraces the philosophy of eco-friendly living by challenging us on how many items we really need. This beautiful and ingenious art allows one object to have many uses simply by folding and tying the cloth in different ways.

While Japanese culture is not alone in using fabric wrapping, furoshiki has a distinctive style reflecting Japanese interest in ceremony, beauty, multi-functional objects and thoughtfulness in detail as an approach to everyday life.

Cloth wrapping has been used for over 1200 years in Japan and the word furoshiki, meaning "bath spread", dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868) when the cloths were commonly used in bath houses to wrap clothes and as a bath mat. 

Over time, Japanese developed a multitude of uses and patterns that are both elegant and functional. One furoshiki cloth can be used as a :
a gift wrapping 
a bag for shopping
a handbag decoration                                                                                                          a picnic hamper
a tablecloth
a household decor
a scarf, belt or bandana
a way of wrapping clothes when travelling
