Creation workshops, Glasses case and card holders with tatami-beri

The "Tatami-beri" is resistant fabric and decorative protecting the edges of the mats. As to the evolution of the lifestyle in Japan, in Japanese homes covered with tatami, Japanese-style rooms have been replaced by Western-style rooms without tatami. In contrast, creations from the tatami made from borders are attractive due to their strength and variety of patterns and colors.

A practice of furoshiki, the Japanese art of folding and knotting the fabric, you can create flexible packaging bags and gift will. This allows to discover Japanese culture through art everyday. The furoshiki is one best solution for reducing the consumption of plastic bags and packaging paper.
