Materials: 100% cotton shantung (heavier weight Japanese crepe cloth).
Size: 90cm x 90cm (35.4 x 35.4").
Uses: Furoshiki (風呂敷, fu-rosh-ki) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. It can be used in multiple ways - you can tie it into a handbag, use it as a scarf, a baby blanket, a wall hanging or gift-wrapping all sorts of things.
This particular lighter-weight Furoshiki softens up the more you wear & wash it. We think this Furoshiki works perfectly as a scarf or tied as a bag or for more delicate wrapping. One simple & beautiful piece of cloth & the list is endless.
Purchase a leather strap & follow these easy steps to use the Furoshiki as a bag.
EASY AS 1-2-3
The removable leather straps are easy to use & don’t damage the cloth, so you can switch between using your Furoshiki as a scarf or bag (although you may want to gently iron out any creases).
Take your leather strap & furoshiki & fold the furoshiki in half.
Thread corners 'A' through the left buckle, & corners 'B' through the right buckle.
Finally pull the threaded fabric down through the buckles to shape the bag.
A Word from the Artist: “Inspired by the angles and shapes of Japanese origami techniques, the elements of this design weave around the fabric to create a bold geometric pattern that reflects my roots, mimicking elements of the traditional tapestry designs found in the southwestern United States.”
Country of Origin: Japan.
