The term describes “a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that was frequently used to transport clothes, gifts or other goods.”
“Although there are still Furoshiki users in Japan, their numbers declined in the post-war period, in large part due to the proliferation of the plastic shopping bag. In recent years, it has seen a renewed interest as environmental protection became a concern.”
What a great “green” way to use any available cloths to wrap your holiday gifts…
