Furoshiki is a centuries-old Japanese tradition of wrapping objects in a square piece of cloth. Originally used by people to transport necessities to and from public baths, merchants adapted the practice to carry, protect, and gift-wrap their products. With the onset of plastic bags, however, this beautiful custom diminished. Luckily, today's eco-friendly movement has stirred interest in furoshiki once again. This book will teach you the four basic knots and various folding methods used to create handbags, backpacks, shopping bags, and bottle bags for objects of varying shapes and sizes. Traditional embroidery designs are included so you can customize each of your furoshiki and bring beauty, style, and environmental consciousness to your life.
