DIFFERENT SIZES FOR DIFFERENT PURPOSES
Traditionally, Furoshiki cloths come in various sizes. Each of them even has a special name! Can you guess why there are different sized cloth? …… The answer is straightforward as you may have guessed - it is for wrapping different size objects.
NAMES FOR DIFFERENT SIZE FUROSHIKI
For the 17” (~45cm) Furoshiki, the one we are working on here, it’s called Chuhaba in Japanese. There are a total of 10 standard Furoshiki sizes, and an additional size, which was recently adopted and named after the English word “handkerchief”.
HOW TO DECIDE WHICH SIZE TO USE
I get asked a lot how to pick the right size Furoshiki. In fact, there’s a standard formula the Japanese uses. You will want the diagonal length of the cloth be 3 times the longest length of the object you plan to wrap.
A GREAT THING ABOUT FUROSHIKIWhat’s great about Furoshiki wrapping is that you can redo your wrap or knot if it doesn’t look nice, unlike wrapping paper – once there’s a fold, it will leave a permanent crease mark, but for fabric you can iron out the crease.
