Learn the art of furoshiki bag making, gift wrapping and clothing wraps in clear and simple steps.

Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth, and it is used for may purposes: to wrap gifts, to knot into different types of bags, to carry items from one place to another and even to knot into clothing. Furoshiki has a place not only in traditional Japanese-style living, but also in modern, Western-style living. The ties in furoshiki represent the ties between people and using them to wrap things is a way of wrapping up and presenting our feelings, making furoshiki a fantastic communication tool.

Here, the author shows us how to make beautiful bags, cushion covers, halter-neck tops, a bottle carrier, a laptop bag, and even how to wrap a guitar. Once you learn the basic methods of tying, you can tie furoshiki in different ways to suit the size and shape of the contents within.
