4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Weekender on January 18, 2012
Format: Paperback
This book suggests many different ways to use furoshiki, from wrapping gifts to making purses to carrying wine bottles to a party. The illustrations are easy to follow and the photographs show how it looks in real life. Various types of fabrics for different uses are discussed. The author gives some history on furoshiki, which has been used in Japan since the 700's C.E. She also makes it relevant to today by suggesting using furoshiki when shopping, as an environmentally friendly alternative to plastic bags. It's a very easy, quick, and interesting read that will teach you a useful craft in no time.
