Have you ever experienced a self-conflict over fashion?
Perhaps, you internally chose a major “Sustainable Fashion Management” whereas you like fashion. You may have ended up arriving in the middle of nowhere where there is nothing to buy at the end of a lot of self-discussions.
Can furoshiki be a sustaible choice?
Furoshiki is timeless. The long history provides the evidence.
It has been with us over 1200 years.
You don’t have to change it by trends.
In a perspective of circular economy principles in fashion, furoshiki bags have potential as an ethical choice.
1. eco-friendly ?
Even if you no longer use your furoshiki as a bag, it plays other rolls. For instance, it can be an organizer when packing your clothes for traveling, or a tablecloth, cushion cover, etc.
A worn-out furoshiki may end its role as a cleaning cloth. Otherwise, it may travel to a recycle box in order to get reincarnated.
2. Not only eco-friendly but also sophisticated
As you know, Musubi furoshiki is particulary designed to be wrapped or tyed.
It is very important for furoshiki how it looks when they are used not only as a flat cloth but also as a wrapping cloth. That’s why Musubi’s furoshiki is beautiful even when it turns into a bag.
In fact, for instance, the traditional concept that the eye-catching design is to be located on the bottom right; called "Omogara（主柄)" is still alive. This concept of design makes furoshiki beautiful when it's wrapped.
