Wrapping with Fabric: Your Complete Guide to Furoshiki - The Japanese Art of Wrapping
DescriptionWrap anything from a wine bottle to a yoga mat with this practical Japanese fabric-wrapping book.
Long before today's eco-friendly philosophy of "reduce, reuse, recycle" entered America's collective consciousness, furoshiki-the Japanese method of wrapping things with fabric-flourished as a time-honored and practical art form. In Wrapping With Fabric , Etsuko Yamada-born into a long-line of furoshiki makers in Kyoto-explains the "one cloth, many uses" ideology behind the craft, the etiquette of color and the craft's fascinating history. From there, she shares the myriad ways in which a few basic techniques can transform a simple square of cloth into an elegant wrapper.
Use your folded fabrics to:
- Gift-wrap anything from books to flowers
- Bundle up a picnic
- Tote items around
- Use as a handbag or backpack
- Make into a pillow covering
- Create decorative coverings for vases, tissue boxes, and more
