The Japanese word furoshiki (風呂敷) is used to refer to a square of colorful fabric, which is traditionally used to wrap and carry various objects. Although it may look simple at first glance, there are countless ways to use furoshiki. A plain piece of cloth can be easily transformed into a lovely bag, purse or gift wrap. You can pack anything from books and boxes to watermelons, if only you pick the right size! This Saturday, the boutique “Jaukūs namai“ kindly invites you to take a closer look at furoshiki and learn some of the many wrapping techniques. And don’t miss your chance to buy a real Japanese furoshiki cloth here, too!
