Miki Pimienta – Japanese Furoshiki

The Japanese Art of Wrapping is called Furoshiki. Japanese wrapping cloths, called Furoshiki, are traditionally used to wrap and/or transport goods. They are typically square and available in a variety of sizes, colors, and designs. Furoshiki can wrap virtually any shape and size by using simple wrapping techniques. It is perfect for wrapping gifts such as wine bottles, a box of candies, or a basket of fruits with a cloth specially selected for the gift recipient.  
Miki came from Aichi, Japan, to the U.S. when she was 24 years old. She studied American Studies and received the certificate of Gerontology from CSULB. She is married and has three sons. Miki has taught Furoshiki at Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson and has have taught Origami at elementary schools and at church for many years. She loves sharing the joy of Origami with the American children. She also creates Origami items such as earrings, ornaments, decorations, etc. for sale.
