O&A Everyday – “Little Kuro Cloth”

Hi everyone! We have been super busy preparing to launch our new website. We are also actively adding new products to our line-up. Check out this promo video for our new, “Little Kuro Cloth”!!!

We were inspired to create the “Little Kuro Cloth” after learning more about Japanese furoshiki (traditional Japanese wrapping cloth). The art of folding & tying fabric to wrap gifts and carry goods is noted as being a part of the Japanese history since the Nara Period (AD 710-794). Now, in modern times, leaders in Japan have encouraged the public to use furoshiki as a more eco-friendly choice in place of plastic bags, paper bags, and wrapping paper. Our hope is that our Little Kuro Cloths can provide a fashionable, earth friendly, and versatile way for people to carry goods and wrap gifts.

We named our furoshiki designs, “Little Kuro Cloth” after the classic term, “Little Black Dress”. In our opinion, everyone needs a unique and eco-friendly way to carry their belongings and wrap memorable gifts. We hope that our new designs encourage you to try the “art of furoshiki”.
