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. 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 colour 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 you can use to: Gift-wrap anything from books to flowers: Bundle up a picnic: Tote items ranging from wine bottles to yoga mats: Use as a handbag or backpack: Make into a pillow covering: Create decorative coverings for vases, tissue boxes, and more. A quiet reminder that opportunities for artistry are everywhere around you, Wrapping With Fabric makes it easy to bring a touch of grace and ingenuity to everyday life: and help preserve the environment, too.
