Furoshiki – Japanese Eco-Friendly Gift Wrapping

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!  I hope you’re all having a great holiday filled with food, loved ones, and things you’re thankful for.  One of the little things that I’m thankful that I found is furoshiki (pronounced: foo-rloo-she-key)!  Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese cloth used to wrap and carry gifts, bottles, clothes, lunch boxes, or anything else you can imagine.  They come in a range of different sizes and patterns and can be made of silk, cotton, rayon, or nylon.  Those who are knowledgeable about furoshiki can use one single cloth in many different ways!  The best thing about furoshiki is that you don’t have to cringe when someone rips apart your beautiful wrapping job!

There are specialty shops around Tokyo and online stores devoted to furoshiki.  If you’re interested, pick up a book to learn the art of furoshiki!

Have a great holiday weekend, everyone!
