Our dear members are receiving their parcels, with a lovely limited edition signed print, elegantly hand-written missive, and a handy token object to put to good use, in the days ahead.
Did you know that, each month, my monthly parcel arrives limited a limited edition signed print?
And as the membership grows, the size of each edition grows with it, so these early editions are the most limited and rare.
Furoshiki (風呂敷) is a traditional method for wrapping and carrying goods in Japan, which requires only a square of cloth to elegantly wrap and carry items of all sorts.
If you have happen to be the type of gentleman who carries a pocket handkerchief with you at all times (possibly even one of mine, if you’re a member) you already have all you need on hand for a few small items.
This rather handy diagram, from the Japanese Ministry of the Enviroment (who hopes to encourage the rebirth of Furoshiki as an alternative to disposable bags) offer a wide variety of techniques and is most certainly worth a close study. And some practice.
