Ever tried to wrangle a fitted sheet into a neatly folded square to slip into your linen closet? Or struggled to stretch a too-small fitted sheet onto an oversized mattress? Molly de Vries of Mill Valley-based Ambatalia has a solution: the furoshiki-inspired bottom sheet. Furoshiki is a centuries-old tradition of knotting squares or rectangles of cloth into parcels for transporting belongings and presents. By applying the principles to bedding, you "simply tie a knot at each corner of a flat sheet and tuck it under the mattress," she says. "The knot will form a pleat at the corner that holds the sheet in place." Molly's Furoshiki line of bedding is available in white reclaimed Irish linen sheeting or in natural Texas organic cotton. Stay tuned; she'll be taking orders at the Remodelista Holiday Market in San Francisco on December 12th and 13th; or contact Molly directly at Ambatalia for ordering information.
