求,會讓人想每天使用的FUROSHIKI設計

The “FUROSHIKI” is an item which encapsulates the Japanese wisdom that “less is more.” This simple square piece of fabric has an infinite number of uses. It can be used to wrap gifts or refreshments for travel, used as a bag by attaching a handle, as a multi-purpose cover or tissue box cover. Increasingly, people are using FUROSHIKI in daily life.

Although the FUROSHIKI strongly evokes the image of an “ancient and traditional Japanese tool,” when we focus on its simplicity and convenience, and add pop and stylishly cool designs, wouldn’t everyone in the world want to use such a helpful item?

The PLAYFUL FUROSHIKI Project gathers FUROSHIKI designs born to such free and imaginative perspectives from around the world to be displayed at the digital fabrication cafe FabCafe Tokyo!


濃縮著“Less is more”日本人的智慧的一項物品, 「風呂敷(FUROSHIKI)」。雖然這只不過是一塊正方形的布,但它的使用方法卻是無限大。用來包裝禮物、伴手禮以便拿取移動是最普遍的用法,除此之外像是做出提把變成包包、或是當成多用途蓋布、衛生紙盒套來使用等等,現在也有越來越多人開始這麼做。

雖然風呂敷總帶給人一種「日本的傳統道具」的印象,但如果我們把重點放在他的簡單性及便利性,並且有流行的設計或酷炫的設計的FUROSHIKI的話,那麼世界中的人們會不會想要用用看呢?

在PLAYFUL FUROSHIKI Project 當中,我們從世界各地收集了從這種自由的觀點所誕生的風呂敷設計,並在數位製造咖啡廳・FabCafe Tokyo進行展示!


What is FUROSHIKI? / 關於FUROSHIKI

furoshiki_2

The FUROSHIKI became widely used during the Edo period when people would wrap their clothing and bathing accessories in them to take to the bathhouses. It is said that origins of the FUROSHIKI can be traced back to the Muromachi period.

Its appeals lay in its flexibility(one could wrap just about anything in it) and vividly colorful graphic designs. They have become so popular that many visitors to Japan will take them home as souvenirs. Several famous overseas designer brands have used them as eco-friendly wrapping to package items.


風呂敷(FUROSHIKI)是江戶時代人們要去澡堂的時候,為了把衣服、洗澡用具包起來帶著走而流行開來的東西。也有人說其起源可追溯至室町時代。

其魅力在於無論甚麼東西都能包覆的靈活性,以及色彩鮮艷的圖案。許多海外人士造訪日本時會做為伴手禮帶回,十分受歡迎。國外知名品牌也曾把它當作環保的包裝來使用。



Form / 形狀 :

The fabric is a simple, square shape. The main styles are small sizes measuring about 50 cm(for wrapping bento lunches, etc.), and larger items for carrying clothing and tools – about 100 to 105 cm.


簡單的正方形布。本次主流為,用來包裝便當盒等的較小尺寸大約50cm左右,用於搬運衣服、道具等較大尺寸大約100~105cm左右。

Material / 材料:

Thin and durable fabric is used. Traditionally FUROSHIKI were made primarily of cotton and silk. In the modern era, a variety of new materials such as rayon, polyester, and acetate are also now used. Some types utilize super water repellent processing and can even be used as ground sheets or simplified buckets.


使用薄又堅韌的布料。就傳統的材料來說,大多使用棉和絲綢。現代則有人造纖維、聚酯纖維、醋酸纖維等各式各樣的材料。其中也有經過超撥水加工處理,能用來代替野餐墊或當作簡易水桶使用的風呂敷。
