Furoshiki Wrapping

While I was in Japan I did a very short course (about 1 hr) on furoshiki wrapping. There are various sizes of furoshiki and I tried out three. They are chu-haba (45cm square); futa-haba (68cm square) and nishi-haba (90cm square).  This is the website of the course provider in Kyoto. It was very good with an excellent English speaking tutor and comprehensive notes provided at the end. The only difficuly was finding the place - no English sign outside!

I tried dressing up a wine bottle using one of my linen tea towels (which is not square but rectangular but you get the idea). This is kimono style - including the obi sash. It does crease the linen however.
