Wrap anything from a wine bottle to a yoga mat with this practical Japanese fabric-wrapping book.
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--flourished as a time-honored and practical art form. 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 color 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. Use your folded fabrics to:
- Gift-wrap anything from books to flowers
- Bundle up a picnic
- Tote items around
- 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
is the craft book that makes it easy to bring a touch of grace and ingenuity to everyday life--and help preserve the environment, too.
