Azuma Bag and Furoshiki Wrapping Cloths

The traditional Japanese Azuma Bag is so simple and cute, yet so useful! One length of cloth, turned and sewn becomes a small, strong bag for many jobs. Measuring 14″ × 16″ × 3″, this bag is large enough to carry as a purse, diaper bag, small grocery tote, lunch bag, carry school supplies, beach gear, whatever you can think of, and folds down to take up very little room in a glove box or inside another tote until you need it again. Just tie a knot in the top and voila! So easy!

Furoshiki are of Japanese origin and are used for many things. They were the traditional all purpose carrying bags and wraps from ancient times until the proliferation of cheap, plastic grocery bags. They are now coming back into fashion with our awareness of the harm that those plastic bags are doing to the environment. The Furoshiki are wrapping cloths for fruits and veggies on your trip to the grocery store; why bring your own totes if you fill them with plastic produce bags? Commonly used to wrap Bento boxes, they are also used to wrap gifts, and can be used again and again. Your gift recipient will receive your gift, and the extra gift of a Furoshiki. You can be sure that your gift will be the most unique and the best remembered. There are many ways to wrap and tie your items; there are specialty wraps for wine bottles, to make them into basket shapes and backpacks, to carry books, and to wrap odd shaped items.
