Furoshiki, el arte de envolver japonés / Furoshiki, the Japanese wrapping art

Si me seguís en Instagram habréis visto que la semana pasada estaba descubriendo entusiasmada el Furoshiki.

El Furoshiki es un pañuelo cuadrado que tradicionalmente en Japón se utiliza para envolver y transportar todo tipo de objetos, desde ropa y regalos hasta botellas de vidrio. Estos pañuelos pueden ser de seda, algodón o rayón. Siendo un arte antiguo que cayó en desuso hace tiempo, ahora se está promoviendo no sólo desde el ministerio de medio ambiente japonés sino en todo el mundo como una costumbre que ayuda a cuidar el medio ambiente ahorrando papel y bolsas de plástico.


Cada objeto que vayas a envolver tendrá un patron de anudado que seguir. Dejadme que hoy os muestre el más básico a través de un precioso post de Julep.

• Un caja cuadrada de unos 10cm
• Un pañuelo de tejido de unos 50 x 50 cm
• Tijeras


Primero colocamos la caja sobre la tela del revés. Tiramos de las esquinas opuestas de la tela alrededor de la caja y cortamos las esquinas, dejando suficiente material para reunirse en la parte superior de la caja. Podemos usar aquí un pedazo de cinta adhesiva doble para asegurar la tela aquí mientras hacemos el siguiente paso, es una ayuda.

Después doblamos la tela sobre los lados de la caja, como haríamos si fuera papel. Pellizcamos con el dedo índice y el pulgar donde vemos abajo, tensando el tejido alrededor de los lados de la caja. Sin dejar de tensar, cruzamos y giramos los picos uno alrededor del otro y remetemos cada extremo por debajo del nudo. Para que quede más limpio, podemos ocultar los extremos.


El resultado final es precioso y si combinamos distintos colores y estampados en los pañuelos puede quedarnos algo así:

If you follow me on Instagram you you saw last week my enthusiastic discovering of the Furoshiki.

Furoshiki is a square handkerchief traditionally used in Japan to wrap and transport all kinds of objects, from clothes and gifts to glass bottles. These handkerchiefs can be made in silk, cotton or rayon. Being an ancient art that has been in disuse for some time, it is now being promoted not only from the Japanese Ministry of Environment but also all over the world as an habit that helps to care for the environment by saving paper and plastic bags.
Each object you are going to wrap will have a knot pattern to follow. Let me show you the most basic today through a beautiful Julep post.

We will need:
• 4″ square box
• A 20″ square from fabric 
• Scissors

Place the fabric face down with the box on top. Pull opposite corners of the fabric around the box and cut away corners, leaving just enough material to meet at the top of the box. You can use a piece of double stick tape to secure the fabric here, it can help you.

Fold fabric over the sides of the box, just as you would wrap a gift with paper. Pinch with index finger and thumb where shown, pulling fabric taut around the sides of the box.

Pinch still the fabric taut, while bringing the fabric “tail” up over the top of the box. Cross the tails around each other as shown, creating 90 degree angles. Tuck each tail under the knot once more as shown, and pull taut. For a tidy look, gently conceal the unfinished ends under the gathered fabric.
