Do you need a bag to carry your groceries? The Japanese furoshiki is a traditional cloth that takes on multiple forms. Let’s fold into a grocery bags !
Using Furoshiki for shopping is Japanese traditions that has been passing on for a long time. It has been used by Japanese people for over 1,000 years. However, furoshiki use declined as plastic bags started to become widely used.
I think Furoshiki is still convenient for shopping. You can carry your groceries and reduce single use plastic bag.Furoshiki can be washed and used over and over again.You can also make it into a bigger bag for groceries. It’s just like origami but much easier.You do not need for needle , thread or skills.
Do you want to know where you can buy some of these furoshiki in various designs, and perhaps a book explaining how to do it ? My favorite furoshiki shop is Musubi Furoshiki Wholesale Store . They sell hundreds of different Furoshiki. They sell the modern lifestyle of furoshiki. The quality is good ! You can use it for a long time. They have a shop in Kyoto in Japan. They have online shop to overseas, too.
