What you'll do

Visit a family-owned furoshiki textile factory

See how furoshiki—a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth— is produced, from template production to dyeing and quality control. Furoshiki can be used in many different ways, even as bags, and each furoshiki cloth has its own story of design, modeling, coloring, and sewing. We'll meet Mr. Fukuda, the owner of a furoshiki printing facility, who's carrying on a 50-year family tradition and has dyed furoshiki since he was in kindergarten.
