The "furoshikishiki" (furoshiki style) is made out of one sheet of semi-transparentvinyl "film." This sheet is turned into a bag by folding it andmaking use of the adhesive qualities of the material. It is a practicalmaterial: easy to clean and when washed with soap the material regains itsadhesive qualities.
Thetransparency of the material allows you to play with colour combinations,resulting in different degrees of transparency. The bag can easily transforminto its original sheet-shape changing its function. For instance, it can beused as a sheet to sit on (during hanabi/hanami), or its contents can be laidout on the sheet.
