The “Dutch museum of bags and purses Hendrikje” has selected the furoshiki shiki for their permanent collection.
Currently the furoshiki shiki is also part of the exhibition “WHY OLD FASHIONED” (interweaving old techniques).
“With this exhibition we prove that handcraft techniques are back in fashion. Well known designers and fashion houses are using traditional techniques such as weaving, embroidery, knitting and crochet.” “…nowadays designers may also choose to use unconventional materials such as cotton, ribbons, plastic bags, plastic wires and even sweet packets”
