Bye bye It-bag, Hello Furoshiki.
It's timely to make something out of nothing. If it looks great and is ethical to boot then we can only be on to a win win.
Furoshiki is traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that has been used since the Nara period to decoratively wrap clothes, food and other goods either as gifts or simply for transportation.
They make great reusable eco-friendly shopping bags and can of course can express your ‘uniqueness’ through the choice of fabric, colour and pattern.
With just a few simple knots, a 30 inch square piece of cloth can be tied to carry your worldly possessions – you could probably even wrap it around last seasons It-bag.
