If you are in Paris this week-end, do not miss the ephemeral giant Furoshiki installation on the forecourt of the Paris city hall.
This huge tent houses an exhibition of furoshiki, an ancestral Japanese technique of fabric folding which has been used since the 8th century to wrap up presents, clothes... Some videos presenting the history of the art of furoshiki are also projected.
French and Japanese designers will invite visitors to try the art of wrapping. Indeed, Furoshiki consists in folding a square of fabric around an object in order to carry it. It's considered as being the first eco-bag in the world.
This event is part of the celebrations of the 160th anniversary of the diplomatic relations between Japan and France
