Have you ever heard of “FUROSHIKI”, Japanese traditional “eco bag” ?
Typically a square of 45cm x 45cm, or 103cm×103cm (There are also different sizes).
It is quite handy piece of cloth as you can wrap any shapes of any sizes, small or large, and when you don’t use it, you can simply fold it pretty small.
Most FUROSHIKI have patterns of Japanese plants or traditions on them, however there are some geometric patterns or cute, modernized-traditional patterns nowadays. I heard that Mick Jagger has got a FUROSHIKI in Kyoto, too.
