『Socks wrapping by folding Hanshi-paper』 

Venue:Origata Design InstituteWe introduce the method of Origata to give your gratitude to your father for the coming Father’s Day this year.
This time, we show socks wrapping.
Please do challenge yourself while imagining your father’s happy face.
If you don’t have Mizuhiki (traditional Japanese cord made from twisted paper), you can use a paper strip or twist a paper at home instead.
We recommend the warm color tone that means good fortune to show your gratitude.
