About this product
- Description<b>Wrap anything from a wine bottle to a yoga mat with this practical Japanese fabric-wrapping book.</b> 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-hored and practical art form. In <i>Wrapping With Fabric</i>, Etsuko Yamada--born into a long-line of furoshiki makers in Kyoto--explains the <i> one cloth, many uses </i> 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. <b>Use your folded fabrics to: </b><ul><li> Gift-wrap anything from books to flowers</li><li> Bundle up a picnic</li><li> Tote items around</li><li> Use as a handbag or backpack</li><li> Make into a pillow covering</li><li> Create decorative coverings for vases, tissue boxes, and more</li></ul>A quiet reminder that opportunities for artistry are everywhere around you, <i>Wrapping With Fabric</i> 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.
