Furoshiki is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that you can tie into a purse, or as a re-usable wrapping cloth for gifts, or flowers, or just for toting around almost anything really. Check out this neat video for ideas on how to use one.... I've wrapped bottles of wine in these when going to a dinner party, and always received compliments on the 'cleverness' of it. Then after the party, I use the furoshiki as a scarf for my journey back home.

You can also tie it onto a strap, to make it into a longer-hanging purse. Love this look!

My friend Hiki, of Jollygoo, actually shared all this knowledge with me, that I'm now sharing with you! She has a small shoppe in Japan that carries a beautiful assortment of these wrapping cloths as well as straps. You can scroll through and see them all here.
