The Furoshiki, a Japanese wrapping cloth

Have you heard of furoshikis? They are square fabric cloths used in Japan to wrap everything from lunch, presents, picnics, pillows, groceries, you name it! Made from gorgeous printed cotton fabric, furoshikis are as beautiful as everything coming from Japan.

I love everything Japanese but have never come across this material before. It has so many uses! Do you know anywhere in Australia that I could buy these please?

I just bought a craft book with these in, so I’m hoping to print some myself! They look so useful and pretty too! xx
