What is a furoshiki and how do you pronounce it?  A furoshiki (pronounced similar to piroshky, just slam all those vowels together) is a square wrapping cloth used in Japan.  You can turn it into an instant handbag, giftwrap, a lunchbag and even wrap a bottle of wine with it.   Most furoshiki are about 30 inches square and printed with traditional Japanese decorative motifs.  Use your dye kit furoshiki to carry a snack or incorporate it into your textile art.
