One thought on “Episode 2004: Culture in Cloth

  1. When speaking about FUROSHIKI, it would make sense to learn the correct pronunciation when presenting the art. If the research was done correctly, it would not have seemed like fingernails on a chalkboard!
    In Japanese it is pronounced FYOO-ROH-SHEE’-KEE! not Fur-OSH-kee! Oh my lands!
    So glad you didn’t present the Korean version of Bojagi!
