- About Furoshiki
Furoshiki embraces the philosophy of eco-friendly living by challenging how many items we really need. This beautiful and ingenious art allows one object to have many uses simply by folding and tying cloth in a different way.
The term, which literally translates to "bath (furo) spread (shiki)" was first used in the Nara period (710-794) as a means to protect valuable goods.
The Japanese have mastered the art of doling fabric to transport and wrap items. This has evolved into a popular practice in cultures around the world as a versatile, environmentally-friendly way to carry bottles, food and everyday necessities. It has also become a modern alternative to holiday gift wrapping.
