Furoshiki – traditional and modern adaptations
Furoshiki – The art of Japanese gift wrapping with fabric- traditional and modern adaptiations – an evening with Megumi Inouye and the Japan Society at the Conde House showroom.
Led by local artist/journalist Megumi Inouye, we explored the history, culture, techniques and intentions behind gift wrapping in Japan. Both traditional and modern styles of folding, twisting and tying fabric to wrap everything from boxes, circular objects, bottles and ceramic objects while experiencing its application to todays everyday lifestyle. Both the furoshiki and Conde House furniture are items that we use heavily that gives us reprieve from our otherwise busy daily lives. They offer a sustainable solution while demonstrating beauty and a sense of personal style that grows with us.
