Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Instead of gift wrapping paper, it is also often used to wrap gifts – it is also reusable.


Modern furoshiki is typically made of a variety of cloths, including cotton, rayon, nylon and silk and come in a variety of sizes and patterns.


All the pictures in this blog post were taken by my wife who attended a furoshiki wrapping class earlier this year in Tokyo.

  1. The wrapping is beautiful. My mother is interested in attending a furoshiki class (with an English speaking teacher) while we are in Tokyo this Fall. Do you recall the name of the class and where you took it? Thank you.
