Furoshiki 101 with Oshitani Sensei

Why waste paper, tape and ribbons to wrap gifts when you can just use fabric, or furoshiki cloth?
Learn the art of wrapping gifts and other items in fabric!

The word furoshiki (風呂敷) refers to the craft of wrapping an item, as well as to the actual cloth itself, which is usually decorated with a colourful design. The term Furoshiki roughly translates to "bath (furo) spread (shiki)" because the cloths were originally used to carry items to the public bath house and then used as a kind of bath mat. Nowadays, it's just a clever way to wrap up and carry bottles, food, gifts, and other items. Learn the little-known craft of furoshiki wrapping, the Japanese art of skillfully wrapping goods and products
