About this event

The Art of Furoshiki

Furoshiki, the Japanese craft of wrapping with fabric, is one of the most time-honoured art forms and embodied the philosophy of “reduce, reuse and recycle" long before eco-friendliness became fashionable.

Equal parts beauty and function, it originated in Japan around 710 B.C. during the Nara period. The name furoshiki was applied during the Muromachi period, which lasted from 1136 to 1573. It is believed the Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, a Shogun during this era, installed a large bathhouse in his residence and invited feudal lords to stay and use the facility. These guests would wrap their kimonos in furoshiki cloth while they bathed as to not confuse them with others. Often, the cloth was adorned with family crests and emblems as further indications of who they belonged to. Many stood on the fabrics while drying after bathing, hence the translation of the word to “bath spread.”

Join us in embracing this craft that has been passed down through generations and brings a touch of grace and ingenuity to your daily life. Used as gift wrapping it is the perfect way to convey thoughtfulness and courtesy through the care taken in the choice of wrapping and in the way the fabric is folded and tied.

“To wrap the world with words is easy. But to wrap life in a small square of cloth is unbelievable”
