furoshiki

back to being eco and inventive – another gift that yuki bought me – a 1950’s scarf especially intended for furoshiki – i didnt know much about it, though i did photograph something similar for jane brockets stitching book. 

once i watched the you tube, i was fascinated – how delightful to be able to pay for something in a shop, take out your scarf and make a bag to take your purchase home in!  its eco, green and makes you look super talented – better get practising.  in the meantime, you can give any square piece of fabric, but i did notice in brixton village there was a great african shop – african queen selling batique materials.

also makes a lovely alternative way for wrapping a present!  and if you are really green you could take it shopping with you and then wrap up your purchases with your scarf.
