Furoshiki is a Japanese technique of folding fabric, a little like origami. You can turn a piece of cloth or scarf into various shapes to wrap a present, knotted bags, make a head dress or simply as a picnic blanket or table cloth. Re-using this square piece of fabric for different purposes creates less foot print on the environment too!
Each straps or bag has instructions on how to knot a few designs.
'The squares are hand printed in San Diego at L'Atelier, I use only natural fabrics like cotton, linen or hemp of the highest quality and print with water based dyes.
The denim chambray makes a great scarf, the cotton twill a tale cloth or picnic blanket and the natural linen is very soft and makes a great shawl. They are all great for swrapping or bag making and feel good fabrics.
