Wrapping cloths (furoshiki) have been part of Japanese tradition since ancient times.
They are a fabulous, zero waste way of wrapping anything, from wine bottles to clothes and othe kind of gifts.
Furoshiki embraces the philosophy of eco-friendly lifestyle. This ingenious art allows the same cloth to have many uses simply by folding and tying it in different ways.
Even though Japanese culture is not the only one using fabric wrapping, furoshiki reflects Japanese interest in ceremony, beauty, multi-functionality and thoughtfulness in details as an approach to everyday life.
Cloth wrapping has been used for over 1200 years in Japan and the word furoshiki means "bath spread" and dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868) when the cloths were commonly used in bath houses wrapped as a bath mat.
Over time, Japanese people developed a multitude of uses and patterns that are both elegant and functional. One furoshiki cloth can be used for :
a gift wrapping
a bag for shopping
a handbag decoration
a picnic hamper
a scarf, belt or bandana
wrapping clothes when travelling
