Tsutsumu – The Art of Japanese Packaging

: Hou, Tsutsumi( box, carry, Wrap something inside) Japanese traditional packaging In the mountain village of Yoshino, an old-fashioned craftworker is manipulating a single Fujizuru( vine of Wisteria) with spirit. Now it is difficult to get such a sturdy Fujizuru. Like a serpent with a goal of God, a single fujizuru lodges to the surface of Shiraki( nonvernished timber) and securely ties it up. This fujizuru was collected 20 years ago and had been ripened in a dark corner of store. Sleeping in the past 20 times is not just a sleep. The fujizuru flesh and fiber breathed in a moderate natural moisture and gained supple toughness. They employed a entire centre in wrapping. The wrap materials aged over time. When handed and unwrapped, Yasukesushi has become the best taste by age. But this fujizuru can only get out under sunlight for a very short time. After a while, it will be cut off for opening.At first, the word in Japanese Kami( God, tone) was a word meaning a superior person. God of rice comes down from the mountain. Villagers invite the divinity of rice and engage in sumo with God. It is for stepping on the anchor and putting the strong capability of abundance in the floor. He contends earnestly in sumo with the invisible God of rice. God of rice is strong.Even if he is thrown over and over, he will continue contending. Retaining push is the same as keeping praying with the whole in recollection and organization Eventually, the divinity of rice originate large-hearted smile. The beginning of Hineri( twine things( In most cases coins) with paper by wriggle) is the manifestation of people’s simple mind. A small wish is put in wrap things and it is given to Gods and atmospheres. Natural conservation is large, soft and envelops people’s mind. Each one of quality covers up yummy seasonal meat made by people.A color brought up by nature. A anatomy created by nature. And a draped centre. Nature embodies to people’s wisdom and skills. Beings originate the proper use of nature’s dispensation and life. There, a handmade tradition of tsutsumu( wrapping) was born. Wrapping fresh eggs. Like to grow five children lovingly. Carrying fresh eggs far. like to let each five children leave on a wander. This is called Tamagotsuto. A space is naturally organized between the straws. It is fasten tightly with a simple love for wrapped things. Even if it is shaking at the waist of a woodcutter that vanished deep into the mountain, it will not separate. In the 3 rd century BC, various ethnic groups seeing rice shored on the coast of Japan. From that time on, living culture exercising straw that is easy to obtain, strong and supple has started. It is an old past. But who would have started the way of wrapping of this Makiburi?( Wrapped yellowtail) The Sea of Japan is a treasure trove of fish and can take various kinds of fish.Among them, yellowtail is the king. After immersing Kanburi( yellowtail in winter) in salt water for 10 dates, cool in a dark residence with a strong sea breeze and gale it with straw rope. The intelligence and tail are wrapped tightly, while the middle-of-the-road is wrapped loosely. Then, the ventilation improves. Unpack the rope by the amount you feed and reel the remain again. I too wreaked this to a far mountain.If you say in the present word, it is preserved food. This influence is beautiful no matter when I look at it. Who came up with this way of offsetting Makiburi? People in this country did not regard severe sort as antagonist. They get into nature, blend into nature, and assemble geniu from quality itself. They did not go against nature, nurturing the sum of living and people, with the training courses of quality. A straw life culture started from people’s natural surroundings that parties soon notice. Furthermore, the living culture exerting lumber overlaps. Moreover, the life culture of take and sasa( stem and Leaf of bamboo) overlap beautifully. straw, wood, branch of bamboo, needle of bamboo, newspaper and clay. As the flow of each life culture raised the rich creative power of people as the basis of the act of wrapping. Take( Bamboo, extremely stem of bamboo) Its dry feeling and the straight impression represented bamboo an handsome embed from ancient times for people in this humid country. Planes employing bamboo segment. Craft working resilience of bamboo Takekago( bamboo basket ), takezaru( Bamboo filter) The clevernes of the Japanese grown more supple and simple things consuming bamboo.From one bamboo, you can collect as many as 36 bamboo skins. It is said that the bamboo barks will fall in order as they are done one by one on a penalty time morning. Sliced beef, whitemiso and redmiso, sugar break-dance with a mallet It is a strong and inexpensive wrapping paper produced by nature. A ”” or ””( ki: tree) has the same sound with ””( Ki) which is used in paroles of ””( kimochi: feeling, aim, feeling) and ””( kiryoku: verve, character, superpower, exertion ). From ancient times, parties have hoped to incorporate the strength of trees’ vigour to myself. Cleanliness, integrity of unpainted lumber A fresh perfume of lumber bark Beautiful pattern of grove particle. (( natsume, summer motif )= radiant blueprint,( fuyume, winter pattern )= night decoration) Taking advantage of the original formation of the material, make it a handmade wooden box.In Japanese, ” savor ” is called ”( verify, watch, examination the perceive )”. The attractivenes of colours and figures in the eyes. ”( Aji, appreciation, savor) is not just for eating. The receptacle that articulates nutrient is not just a container. Even after taking out the food, the enjoyable, interest, attractivenes of the receptacle itself was needed. The chamber of the Japanese judgment compiled it so. In the casualness, a rustic savour Feeling the climate of the place where it was produced The joy and interest of not only food, but also the container are catched and exquisitely revealed ..

Installing Hardwood Floors on Concrete

It’s great to see so much natural beam comingout from under the rug. Literally thousands of parties are rippingup there carpets to disclose beautiful natural timber storey timbers. Da daaaaaaaaaaaaa Oh, it’s concrete. I knew that. But it’s ok because we are going to show youhow to lay a beautiful natural lumber storey on this concrete pad. We are going to lay the flooring use the directstick approach. Which actually means we are going to glueit and nail it to the concrete pad. Before you begin, your material flooring suppliershould be able to check moisture ranks in the slab to make sure it’s dry enough.There is a large range of emblazons, grainsand diversities of solid material floorings available. The one we have chosen is this glowing colouredoak, it’s going to work really well with the colours we are going to paint the walls. It’s 80 mm wide and 12 mm thick. We start by stigmatizing and checking out the doorframe so that the end bead fits neatly underneath.We are going to lay the boards this mode, alwaysstart with your longest led. Now the lumber is trimmed to size, the fittingof the first timber is critical. It’s gotta be in exactly the right place. To allow for a 10 mm expansion divergence down thisside we have stigmatized the wall an extra 10 mm out here. Using polyurethane adhesive, we glue and nailone dissolve of the first board. This is necessary to rectified perfectly straight, as itis a guide for the rest of the storey. So the very next job in going this firstboard absolutely true is to run a cord position so we can fix this.Just attract it tight Dene. Oh and have you got the pencil and ruler .. Thanks … Applying the string indication as a steer, fingernail andpaint the first board. The adhesive is then evenly spread onto the floorand we can start to lay the beam. Well the adhesive is spread nice and consistently. It’s very important because if you don’t getthat chip right, you get lumps and bumps. We have measured and allowed enough adhesive for1 0 cards. We “il go to” leant those in and then we aregoing to clamp it. Now at this stage, once our first 10 boardsare down we fix squandering these fastens which you can hire from the retailer. Time to close all these gaps up and then wefix and nail the first card or the last board down to hold it all in place. Then we remove the clamps and continue onour way. When you fixing it you made to ensure that youuse an off trimmed as a block, really to protect the tongue on the side of the beam there. Once secured, we are searching for invoked for raisedor drummy stops.We then drill and claw to fix. You right on the end? Yep? We then continue laying the members of the commission which wehave cut at random to create a overwhelmed motif. Well that’s great we are getting there. Regards good. Very good. Well it’s looking great so far, we have almostcome to the end of the laying. The next bit is the sanding and we’re notgoing to do that are we. No I think that calls for an expert. Our expert floor sander exerts this vast arrayof specialist rig to produce a splendid finish on our lumber floor. There are 16 separate steps in the process. He began with a somewhat course paper and thensands both across the board diagonally, and then along the cereal to ensure a dead flatsurface. Recess are passed levelled and sanded to ensurean even professional make. Any imperfections or hammer holes are sided filledand sanded. The tier of articles are then shortened overseparate sanding, finishing with a buffing matted or disc.He then refers the finish over 3 separatecoatings. And we be brought to an end with a awesome undertaking on our beautifulsolid timber floor. Well, we did it. Yeah apart from the sanding. As you have seen sanding can be a little bittricky. I concur, sanding and refining is defiantlya job for the experts. But it looks great. It looks terrific ..

CSULB Design – Following the Rabbit Hole

I speak here does anyone hear me no okay okay how’s it going everyone thanks for being here thank you for the introduction Wesley and yes my name is Cindy and as I was getting together all my ideas for the talk I really realized that the variety of experiences I’ve had was kind of like a series of rabbit-hole how I went from behavioral therapy and psychology to stand in front of you delivering a design lecture so we’re gonna play into the theme of following the rabbit hole and really what that looked like for me and my undergrad career was asking a series of questions I always really liked asking why and it’s incredible when you actually get to that level with just like you ever have a conversation with someone and you’re just like oh why is that and then they give you a response and then you go oh why is that and you end up getting a series of pattern out of that answer to really understand what the motivation is so German der grad I studied human behavior and social influence and I asked a lot of these questions and it seems kind of like a random conglomerate and how that’s all together but I asked you know does birth order affect temperament and that’s basically the idea of you were the first born child middle born child youngest child how does that affect your decision-making process how are your coping mechanisms how does that lead into the decisions that you have later on in life another fun one and I’ll go into this deeper if we have time at the end our facial expressions innate or socially learned now we’re very social beings and we’re constantly gathering information from our environment to kind of communicate what it is that we mean so that’s a really fun one that’s been debated over and over there’s still is no finite answer I should add and then the last one that I really want to go into deeply with you guys is how do humans conceptualize abstract and motions so playing on this idea of love right when we think about love everybody has a different definition for what that looks like I feel like right now there’s a good colloquial going around of love language so everyone communicates what love means to whoever it is they’re trying to talk to you whether it’s through gifting or acts of kindness or physical affection there’s different ways that we express how we can understand that emotion so most of what we do is our highest most sophisticated thoughts are actually rooted in a lot of physical bodily functions and so there’s this idea called embody metaphors where it’s basically like idioms and sayings that basically try to capture this abstract idea where we can step into it so it takes something that is so vast and hard to define and makes it more tangible so that we can empathize with it so when you think about love there’s all these different things that come up two peas in a pod I’m head-over-heels in love with this person we’re going our separate ways right they’re all very physically oriented things in which you can see your body set in and do and so it conveys this idea especially for going separate ways you know two people were together and Olson they’re not and they’re not going in the straight path anymore they’re going separate and it takes this thing that you know you may not exactly understand what it is they’re going through specifically but the idea is so strong because it’s a physical phenomenon and so what happens is abstract emotions end up being like symptoms so you have something like the common cold one person can have sniffling and sneezes and another person may have coughing and a sore throat but you all fit under this umbrella of the common cold right it’s the same diagnosis and that’s what happens with emotions as well same thing with anger sadness with happiness especially going back to anger you know we have different ways of expressing that as well you can see people who physically exert kind of like this cathartic release or you have people who just keep to themselves and really internalized so we all process these things in different ways but for us to have that mutual understanding we can communicate it through embodied metaphors so I was talking about this with my housemate the time and I was like yeah it’s crazy you know love is it’s a four-letter word it’s so simple but I loved watching the sunset I love my mom I love my cat and those are all very different ideas of what love may mean but it communicates this level of passion right like I really really care about all those things I just listed so she was like well you know love is just one word but seven words for love and I was like woah you mean to tell me that this whole time I think we were probably in our early 20s at this point you’ve had love plus seven other ways to categorize all the different ways you can understand what it is you’re feeling so then it posed this question do when we go back a little bit I’ll show you all the examples so the first one is eros romantic passionate love and that’s something you probably would feel with a romantic partner there’s fewer there’s intimate authentic friendship ludos it’s playful flirty Suslov stork unconditional familiar love right that’s what I would use talk with my mom and flusha self love which is a term that’s I think an emerging more an hour colloquial in this generation right this idea of self love we can instantly think about okay that’s something that I do for myself to recharge whether it’s reading or taking a walks or whatever it is there’s a more well-defined concept and if you take self out of it it’s pretty abstract but then you add the self in there and suddenly it communicates this very clear method in which you’re going to communicate that love committed compassionate love is pragma and then agape is empathetic Universal love so seven different buckets for this very very big umbrella emotion right so it made me wonder if she grew up with each of these buckets right so categorized one thing as an English speaker that I know of she’s seven different options so when she’s going through each of experiences surety has that predisposition of options to say oh you know what I’m feeling this and so I started to ask do people with multiple language skills have higher emotional intelligence if you speak more than one language and there’s different ways for you to express that feeling does that mean that you you know have a better idea than somebody who has less of those options so it turns out that’s some very very smart people have already pondered this phenomenon and they call it linguistic determinism so this idea is basically what language you predominantly speak has huge effects on how you shape the concepts that you experience in the world so that makes a lot of sense right it’s kind of like this idea of trying to translate poetry it never quite gets there or listening to music that’s been translated to or even like dubbed movies right something’s always a little bit off but does it really get across so it’s really important that this at the crux of language is how we experience things around us and when it comes down to design there’s some really really important things that people should have thought about when it comes to language so these are some examples of ad campaigns that have failed horribly because they’ve got lost in translation I don’t know if you’re familiar which HSBC they basically were the number-one drug smuggling bank for the cartel you should look it up if you don’t know anything about that there’s a really good dirty money episode on it it’s super interesting so it’s a good grounds for rebranding right and they ended up translating to do nothing which is terrible and similarly with Pepsi and KFC the Chinese translation doesn’t really quite get there right so you get a lot of things that are lost and you’re losing the ability to capture your target market if you were to understand that you know language comes down to the key communication of whatever it is you’re running I think that they would have approached it a lot differently so after my undergrad I like seeing people’s reactions because I didn’t put any context to this but I’ll get into so after my undergrad I was asking a series of questions you know what it is that I want to research next and I ended up going to a fungus night at the Academy of Sciences in San Francisco so they had all these really wonderful experts all over the fungi world you know people growing just really insane mushrooms and using it to cure cancer and that uh so there’s this woman named Jeremy Lee who runs a company called Co yo and it’s a startup company that’s based in Mountain View and what you’re looking at is their product which is a cotton burial shroud so when you die you can get wrapped in the shroud and it’s embedded with mushroom spores and it will eventually decompose your body and your bones and recycle all those nutrients back into the living organisms around you pretty far out everyone it’s like quiet like whoa what is that yeah it is a really really revolutionary product and what’s interesting is there’s not a lot of product development in the funeral business it’s just it’s a monopoly you know you’re not really getting people who are competing with the next funeral home saying hey we have better deals and it’s such a sensitive topic especially in Western culture so topics of taboo don’t often get that target market addressed and so what I did for this company is I did a lot of psychographic of research so I conducted a series of interviews of people who were already participants I’m using the shroud whether it was for humans or for pets and then I investigated what the phenomenon was in the funeral home business what it was like to be a funeral home owner and to provide the products that people select so what I found is it’s a very tricky thing to tackle you know the target market here is people who are dead but those aren’t the people making the decision for what they’re going to be buried in and a lot of times you really have it written in your will or maybe based on religion or a tradition there’s something that’s already preset so it’s kind of hard to engage in a target market and try to get them to convert to using a new product especially something that needs a lot of explanation and challenges really old ideologies so that was really interesting that was kind of just like a fun fact so after I did that I ended up going to be careful therapy I got my license and applied behavioral therapy in the shorthand for that as a BA and the foundation of that form of therapy is really to understand what is the function of our behavior every behavior is trying to communicate something so if we’re able to identify what that is you can address the need a lot sooner and this is something that as designers is kind of like the first stage of ideation right you’re trying to serve a need to a very specific group of people and you have to understand and really empathize with what that looks like so what I wanted was that humans are really malleable beings across the cognitive scale but what I did was I did one-on-one therapy specifically with clients on the autism spectrum in between the ages of 3 and 15 typically and whenever we found a behavior that was maladaptive or disruptive we had to design programs to get them to re learn how to ask for that behavior so the four functions of behavior under ABA the first one is sensory so this is if you’re doing something because it really just feels good to do if you’ve ever gone to the market and just like stuck your hand in a bag of beans or digging your toes in the sand you’re just doing it because it physically feels good to do the second one is escape so if you are in a really awkward situation someone’s making you feel comfortable you want to remove yourself from that right simply that’s undesired I’m gonna leave attention literally the reason why babies cry they don’t know any words yet and they’re just crying because they need something they need your attention to come and dress it and the last one is access to tangibles and my favorite example of this is like the kid that’s throw a tantrum in the chocolate aisle because they’re paired just said no I’m not gonna buy you a chocolate bar so that is pretty much how ABA has bucketed the reasons why we do things okay so I’m gonna take a pause there because a lot of people understand that humans are valuable beings we’re constantly influenced on a daily scale especially now with how fast technology is accelerating and we’re susceptible to a lot of outside influence and so it’s really gotten our ways of consumerism to be faster and faster there’s overproduction over consumption and a great deal of waste to deal with so I’m pretty sure a lot of you are familiar with those two ideas right and those are the things that are driving this accelerated number of acquiring 64 to 68 new pieces of clothing a year half of which are all worn just three times or less which creates an immense amount of waste and that 80 pounds of clothing sorry 18 tons of clothing every three days that ends up going to the global south or then their debt they’re meant to deal with our waste and they go into resale market after resale markets but the truth of the matter is we’re creating things that don’t last that are trendy so they inherently can’t last much longer that perceived obsolescence and they end up going to the landfill but they go overseas somewhere else where we can’t see and that’s kind of the problem of the cycle is that this kind of information is not apparent in that materials economy it’s drawn out like a linear path when really it should be something that is cyclical so I would really recommend watching that video in your spare time it’s a really good use of your time and she goes through a number of ways where you can actually intercept like so if you just bought one used item this year instead of a new one it would save six pounds of co2 emissions which is equivalent to removing half a million cards off the road for a year that’s pretty significant so there’s two ways that I can see us participating in it and oftentimes I get stuck in the struggle of the burden of knowledge right it’s a lot to take on it feels like it’s a system that has been in tradition for so long where are we supposed to make them so from the bottom up the number-one rule is just to five less slow down and really consider the things that you are consuming ask yourself is this something that I can see myself having for five years for ten years and then of course shopping secondhand and that doesn’t mean you know just with your clothing you can buy a lot of the other hard goods that you need in your daily life and through many other resources I’m happy to share all of them and then talking about this kind of stuff with people around you and asking people why do you choose to shop the way you do it starts really good conversation then you can keep asking what and the second is from the top down which the most effective way I see it is legislation reform and we all know that politics is a really long hard game so the part that we as designers can play into it is systems reform how do we make things differently how do we really understand what it is we’re putting out into the world now the woman that I worked for eschewed Young Burton who started a plot she had an entire career in industrial design before starting this brand and the first thing she said to me upon me getting hired was you know I never actually really understood what was happening with my products I would make the design I’d send it out and I’d get it back and that was all I really knew and that I never cared to ask and so there’s many points of intervention here and I really like what any Leonard says about seeing all the connections to the big picture and the rest of this presentation is really gonna focus on how we can all work together to unify these systems instead of having them broken down in these linear chunks how do we get it to all revolve and work with each other where one person’s waste becomes another person’s resource so is anyone familiar with how garment is made raise your hand if you have an idea what what’s your opinion are like what how do you think clothing is made yeah wow that was a really really nice response I was more than I was expecting so yeah you actually got it pretty spot-on but there’s all these little factors that go into how and how many it’s the garment industry makes so we start with a pattern a pattern is basically the blueprint for all the components that go into a piece of clothing so if I were to take my coat and chop this little off and then cut it in half and lay it flat that would be a pattern so all those pieces laid out on a piece of paper is called the marker and the mercury is used as a stencil to guide the cutting process and the marker has all these pattern pieces laid out flat and then it’s laid on top of piles of fabric so that it can all be cut out at the same time so this is a CAD of what a garment industry pattern marker might look like you can see that it’s all separated by sizes based on the colors so extra small all the way to extra large and the reason why it’s beneficial for it to be separated like this is so you can clearly see all the corresponding components that go into a certain size now if you looked at this corner right here the program tells you how much of that fabric is actually utilized so that means out of this entire surface area that you see all the colored pieces only make up 61% of what you see all the negative space around it that’s white is 38% that’s all the stuff that’s going to landfill so that’s almost that’s 40% 40% is pretty close to 50% so what that’s like half of the fabric that’s just getting discarded through this process now a lot of people ask well can’t you puzzle it differently to make it more efficiently and you can’t this is what it would look like if you maximize your surface area now it doesn’t say it down here but this is probably close around 10% maybe less than 10% waste which is really good 10% is a really good number to aim for that is significantly lower than average waste however you see all the pattern workers now are scattered the sizes like you see large some over here some over there and it makes it really hard to actually account for how many pieces you’re going to get if you print out this marker and you cut out all these pieces you’re going to get an equal ratio across all the sizes right the reason why most industries separated by sizing is because you’re doing changes right medium might be a more popular size and extra large or extra small so you’re gonna pile more sizes on to this production skew rather than the ones at the Umbrella edge so that makes it really difficult for people because when you do it like this even when you’re conserving fabric you can’t just say okay I’m gonna cut more of the meeting pieces because the fabric is going across the whole entire sheet so there’s no way to really compartmentalize your sizes and that’s why this ends up being the industry standard now as wesley mentioned earlier I work for a company right now called a plot we’re located in San Francisco were very lucky to be across the street from the factory where we produce at which we have a great intimate relationship that we foster to kind of change this pattern system so we make zero waste bags for culinary for wine for bread and produce as well as garden this is a little bit of a product run through so this is the plot hope it’s meant to carry your Bulls your dishes horizontally going to picnics or potlucks we have a line of zero waste pan covers and dish covers to eliminate single-use saran wrap and foil we make wine carriers for a single bottle double bottle bread and storage bags for the same reason as the covers but actually storing your bread and produce in organic cotton preserves them for a lot longer it lets the vegetables breathe while absorbing the moisture that oftentimes is what makes it well faster especially for leafy greens or mushrooms this is our garden collection and all the denim that you see we actually sourced from local surplus rolls so what happens is a company like Levi’s for example they go through a production under five thousand pieces now at the very end they have 40 rolls of fabric for 40 yards of fabric left which sounds like a lot but in the scale of 5000 pieces you actually can’t make anything that you’re actually going to sell so those leftover rolls end up going to trash and we rescue a lot of that back and extend their product lifecycle and this is our flower tote which actually is the first product that launched the brand shoe is actually gifting flowers to a friend and when she got the bouquet back it was wrapped in this plastic cellophane she thought this is terrible contrast to honoring something that comes from the planet so she ended up going home and drafting this up and shortly after that within a few hours she had the entire product line and this happened recently which was cool actually uh I showed my boyfriend this and he was just like who is that I’m not gonna explain if you don’t know so as makers we understand that we have a choice right and our choice here is to really take responsibility for the part that we play in pre-consumer waste if we have a way to manage the waste that we create then that is our ultimate goal and how we achieve this is by using origami principles I’m using golden ratios and geometry what that means it’s basically taking one sheet much like you do a piece of paper and building folds through volume and the golden ratios plays into it because when you try to do a zero-waste marker it’s kind of like Tetris thing everything together and it works best when all those rectangle dimensions are ratio to one another one second okay so this piece that I’m holding up makes this product this product and this product so we’re able to take one rectangle and fold it into three different things to maximize the use of just one simple marker so like I mentioned before the key is in the marker and this is a photo of what our marker looks like my day-to-day job as an operations manager here is to be in the factories and work really closely with the production line so and that starts mostly in the CAD stage of the marker now you may think you have rectangles and squares why does it take so much time well it’s because like I mentioned earlier the demand is always changing so based on how many units we want to yield you always have to shift what goes on the piece of paper and so you really it’s a very complicated process to explain but I think the visuals are really help this is an example of what our CAD marker looks like it’s five rectangles I can show you a bunch of other ones so this is for the redline but you get the point right it’s all right angles and straight edges that line up and that’s the only way you can get virtually close to zero because you have things that totally match with clothing it’s really hard because it’s organic shapes right we have curves butts elbows aren’t armpits so it’s nearly impossible to really use this method when it comes to clothing unfortunately so I’ll give it a second it’s all over the place so this is basically what the process of laying down fabric looks like you start with pretty much like a 20 foot long table and this roll is on one cylinder that goes back and forth and back and forth and each of those layers of fabric we lay down is called a ply and every time the fabric comes back to fold we call that the return so the reason why we do so much work a pan in the marker is that you’ll always yield some kind of waste in those returns so again this is the stack right here the more markers you have the more returns you’ll have right if you have three different pieces now all of a sudden you have 6 – per piece so what we do is we try to fit everything on one big long marker so that there’s only just two at the very end and unfortunately there’s always waste that comes from that because when you actually make the cut with the guide you have to cut off access to make sure that everything lines up so what we’ve done is because we don’t have any packaging for our products we use those ribbons to tie our products for retail and at the very end I’m going to just play this again so you can see after he lays down all the different colors he’s gonna go and put the marker on top you’re probably seeing about 50 plies or so of fabric it’s pretty thick and then the next slide I’ll show you how he cuts that out okay he has this really fun yardstick that he kind of like goes through and smacks it all down and then there’s these big weights that go across the markers so that the stacks are all flat without wrinkles so you can kind of see that’s what the table looks like when it extends out and he’s using basically a bandsaw to cut through it it’s a really cool thing and I feel like you hardly ever get to see behind the scenes of this process mostly because it’s out of respect to the clients that are out the factory but I feel like this is just really important for you all to see because it’s hard to conceptualize what the process really looks like if you don’t have an example so this is the only product we make that doesn’t have right angles or straight edges then it’s our cover’s collection they’re all bowls so what we’ve done is we fit squares and triangles into the negative space and those become party garlands probably notice I’m in the majority of these photos you wear a lot of hats when you work for a small business and you probably noticed in here there’s these tiny little slivers that RVs and they come out to be about this big in person that unfortunately we can’t do anything with so what we do is we upcycle it with a company called Phoenix fibers in Arizona what they do is they collect cotton and denim pre-consumer waste which is all the waste from production depth doesn’t that is not seen by the consumer crowd they take all of that and they upcycle it into different insulation material for walls automotives and a lot of prison mattresses as well so it’s super super cool so we’ve accounted for this entire cyclical system of our materials economy and we’re really trying to do is close the loop in this production cycle because it doesn’t have to be something that is linear and it starts with our design process right those two products that you saw the bull covers and flags they were designed at the same time the waste was never an aftermath for us to deal with when we’re in the initial prototyping stage we think about all the things that are going to go into what that product yields so we see the waste before actually is waste we try to do something with it ahead of time we also don’t use any hardware’s so no zippers no buttons which really helps elongate the life cycle um and also makes it easier for repair which is something that we’re trying to establish towards maybe this summer we’re gonna launch a series of workshops for people to come and have skills to be able to repair a lot of their items not just their applause stuff but home goods backpacks anything like that and we’re hoping to also launch an artist residency program so I’ll tell you more about that at the end so this is kind of an idea of how fabric bio degrees right now we’re using 100% organic cotton and with the right composting it can actually be gone in a week to five months which is really really cool and as you go down the list these are all-natural organic materials right linen comes from a flax wool comes from sheep bamboos self-explanatory so forms so these are the common products that we actually used to use in our clothing back in our grandparents generation so this is a really awesome resource from closed-loop economy and it basically goes through how organic fiber interacts with man-made fiber and so what you have over here are some of those fibers that I listed on the page before you have your proteins which is material that’s harvested from some kind of livestock and then you have the plant-based stuff up there which is you know your hemp jus flax cotton and then on the red side is all man-made materials so that’s anything from rayon polyester to nylon all these different things that basically are petroleum and oil based which is one of the largest polluting industries in the world so this is what polyester looks like on a chemical level when thermoplastic which means it can be heated up to be reshaped it’s hydrophobic which means it is not absorb any water it takes about two hundred years soozee compose okay so earlier before the lecture started I asked a few students in the front to share with me your fabric contents the people that I asked could you raise your hand and also share with well about this time okay 90% cotton okay mix blends um what about you right 100% polyester okay so I started asking working the factory every day how come we can’t get the garment clients who also share a factory to be able to upcycle a lot of their fabric well it’s because most of the fibers they use are mixed so you get a lot of the synthetics that are mixed with natural Cotton’s that usually could decompose but now all the sudden because it’s inter woven with something that is man-made you’ll never be able to separate it it’s like if you’re using red and blue to make purple once you get to purple you can’t go back to either of those colors right and it’s the same idea it’s woven into a thread which then is woven into the fiber which becomes the fabric for the clothing so there’s really no industrial process to separate a lot of this so that’s why a lot of this just ends up going to landfill because people don’t really have a system for properly separating it yet so I started asking well then where does it all go right because every single day we see bales and bales of fabric moving out it’s all from the pre consumer cuts from these garment industries and so in San Francisco our waste management system is called for ecology Recology is probably one of the most state-of-the-art waste management systems definitely in North America and what they’ve done is basically revolutionized the way that our city thinks about waste now I was really lucky to run into the PR manager there his name is Robert Reed and he has an impressive history in journalism and he’s been with ecology for 19 years and so I started asking all these questions right because I’m a rabbit hole person and I was like hey Robert I’m just wondering when you pick up this fabric what happens to it and you pretty much gave me the same answer he was like you know what I’m gonna tell you a smart person tries to recycle fabric a wise person avoids it altogether and so it was kind of a dead ended thing because he basically said you know we don’t how to figure it out because it’s a problem that keeps persisting and Recology does all kinds of collections not just on a residential level but they go around to commercial spaces like hotels restaurants all of which have a variety of different fabric ways that often has hardware so there’s buttons at first strings all kinds of things that you don’t really know what to deal with so right now at the moment I think he ensued it’s going to landfill I haven’t really confirmed it and that literature isn’t available so that’s my disclaimer but I ended up asking more questions you know what else are you guys doing with the waste and so he was able to tell me some really really incredible things about where ecology does every single day of ecology picks up 650 tons of recycling 80% of which is all fiber material which means it’s cardboard and paper that can be recycled back into new products so there is an industry that exists with taking waste and rikka modifying it and making it resources for a new product what Recology has revolutionized is 800 tons of compost a day which is 150 tons more than recycling which is 800 tons more that’s leaving landfills and going to a different cause and so composting is something that’s mandated by our city and every single house whether there is residential or commercial spaces is required to have cantos which is why they have such a great yield and asked him how did you get such a great number because this program was only launched within the last 10 years and he said the big part was we got city legislation on board after the mandate happened we just put out so much literature we gave people free bins resources to really understand it and then we have a purpose for people to actually compost for what Recology has done is they’re working with all the vineyards in Sonoma County to grow mustard as cover crops now what happens when you go through a typical harvest season is that you’re planting all these things that you want to be nutrient dense because a lot of those things are things we’re gonna put back at our own bodies so you put the best of the materials into the plant food the plant eats and then we eat the plant and so after harvest season the soil has to be completely dedicated of all those nutrients and you plant winter cover crops so that those nutrients can be resold into the ground so right now what Sonoma County is doing is they’re growing rows of mustard in between all the vineyards and mustard is a magic cover crop it absorbs so much co2 emissions that have said that it could probably help with 20% reduction in California submissions alone annually what happens as mustard roots can actually grow to be about six feet deep just taller than most of us and the deeper the roots the deeper that I can so that co2 which is great because plants love carbon dioxide it also pulls nitrogen back in and those two components are the most important for plant nutrients so a lot of that is the biomass which is the food source for these plants to really thrive but additionally the mustard is kind of a symbiotic thing with the vineyards because what happens is you get these soil-borne pests and they’re basically these worms called nematodes and nematodes basically end up eating the thing that you want to eat and so because mustard is so high in by finnegans it’s kind of like a spicy repugnant taste to these worms and the worms leave it alone so now you have a pest problem that is being handled without using any kind of herbicides or pesticides and you’re feeding your plants and you’re taking all of that resource that originally came from someone else’s waste which is incredible and California actually has vowed to be carbon neutral by 2045 and so there’s an immense amount of funding that’s going into motivating California agriculture to basically plant as many cover crops as they can to try to reduce co2 emissions this is a picture of my friend Scott he and I taught a permaculture class together at UC Santa Cruz and this is his farm this is the pictures from his first season he uses a compost from ecology and those are his chrysanthemum flowers as well as golden greens and those are really great cover crops for him going throughout this and these are a variety of Asian heritage vegetables he grows for Asian restaurants and markets in Marin County and this is slide ranch which is a wonderful educational farm that’s pretty close to Stinson Beach on Highway one so you get all this local waste that’s coming from one mystery being married and riku modified to help another industry and I think that’s really what auntie Leonard was getting down to you about unifying and seeing all the connections along the way and as designers we play a huge part in this because we’re the ones now putting things out into the world and we have the power to also redefine systems and how we make those products Recology system was designed by somebody so what I’m hoping you’ll do is maybe you can get together with the folks at your table and kind of go off of the information that I given you about how ecology works with compost and cover crops and think about what that would mean in Long Beach I found out earlier that Long Beach doesn’t have a mandated composting system but that the campus has been trying and so I want to use I want you guys to use the marker pads to just drop down some quick visuals with the facts that you learn and I can go back a few sheets but why should the Long Beach community care about composting yeah so take a few minutes talk to the people at your tables and I’ll go back to the mustards page so you can see so I don’t miss anyone up there okay cool so you guys can keep talking but I’m just gonna summarize a little bit of what I heard as I was popping around most of the berries that were identified were lack of education whether that’s you’re not really sure what can be composted and what’s not there’s some kind of discretion there and the second one was time and resource right Long Beach doesn’t have a composting pick up so a lot of times when you’re composting at home the questions come up so you where do you actually take it the smell the time it takes for it all to break down so these are all really good things to take into account too and what I collected in my data surveying is that this stuff has been designed into your ecology system and so what you guys all just helped me realize is coming from San Francisco we live in a bubble where our behavior has been trained to really understand composting as like a second impulse right it’s the same way that we don’t really think about separating and recycling anymore we’ve been doing it for so long that we don’t really have to stop and ask this question and that five-second delay makes a really big difference for whether you’re motivated to sort it or not so yeah that was definitely something that was super interesting just talking about composting and realizing like what compost material actually is what is the process of compost breakdown and then where does it go afterwards so what’s interesting is because I never realized I live in a bubble until I leave San Francisco because everyone in San Francisco is all trained on the same system right or college you’ve got it like watered down and so for us it’s like oh yeah cover crops this and that and the reason why I had you guys write all the sound is because Robert read a tree ecology they’re really trying to expand their branch I was telling Leslie earlier that they’ve gone up to San Rafael which is the county that’s directly north of the bay and they’ve gone down to the peninsula and San Mateo County as well and they’re really trying to launch some stuff down in Southern California and so I’m gonna collect all these sheets and hopefully feed it back to him and give him some feedback about what kinds of stuff needs to be done so thank you guys very much for participating and a study okay so I wanted to end it with kind of closing out this talk with questions that I want you guys to continue asking the best piece of advice I ever got when I was going through figuring out what I wanted to do with my efforts was what do I think about when I don’t have anything I have to think about and that’s a really interesting question because I don’t know if it’s automatic for us to track where our mind wanders but I’m posing this question because if you follow that you’ll really get to the core of what your true passions are and if you just keep asking questions and track and catalog those questions for yourself you’ll really understand what you want to move towards and that will really help for your design process and guide you to the stuff that you want to go what’s really important you guys are all really talented and you have so many resources more than people in the generation the island or the people above us had when we were your age and you’re the next generation of problem solvers and so along the way you’re going to be the touch point of all these systems that really need our help whether it’s through a product or for an actual systems design so try to write to yourself this is a fun study too so there was a study that was done on college students and the control group basically was asked to write a journal entry for 15 minutes a day for just seven days about what events happened external in the world so the weather was nice today and the news this happened I learned this in class that’s it and the variable group was asked to write all those things but then reflect on how those external factors made them feel internally so the weather was nice today so it lifted my mood cuz I’m happier when the Sun is out this happened in the news and it made me sad because it made me realize that this is the state of the world that were in so those two groups even though they’re talking about the same things one process is how those factors made them feel and then they tested how many times the students went to the Student Health Center over the course of a semester and they found significant decreases in the students that wrote about external matters and reflected internally about how and made them feel so this communicates that we’re able to process and have this phase of reappraisal which is thinking about something that we experienced and trying to recontextualize it we can really start to shape the way that we initially felt that I think it’s like if someone spilled coffee on me because they’re in a rush I get really upset because now I show up to a presentation I’m about to give and I’m covered in coffee but then later on you know I get over it change my clothes and I’m like that wasn’t a big deal I’m not mad anymore maybe that person was in a rush or whatever it was and we’ve learned to let it go and so why we’re not constantly mad right we’re we’re adjusting the way that we see the world and it’s really important to do that with writing when you do that you can really start to get to the core of your own behavioral pattern so that is what I leave you all with and if you guys have any questions is now a good time with me okay [Applause] guys don’t happening and okay hey oh we were looking on your company’s website and we notice a lot of the products that you sell are really expensive so how do you overcome the boundary of the cost mm-hmm yeah that’s a really good question so as she was mentioning our products are probably based in between $30 to 50 the highest price point we have is a hundred for the big market tote and that actually is a huge barrier we run into all the time people want to support the products that we have but the financial incentive is kind of hard and being in San Francisco it’s kind of a too affluent community that can afford some of those products but when you take it outside of that community again leaving the bubble that financial matter really becomes a barrier so what we’ve done is try our best to communicate the values in which we operate our design process by we can explain to people and get them to really understand this is the amount of time that goes into making this product this is the amount of money that goes into getting a resource that was harvested in the United States this is what happens when you actually make your products across the street from where you work in San Francisco and that is the true cost so our cogs are hired because we make all these choices and I think the best we can do is communicate the value of why we make those choices [Music] we just challenge keyboard top down I think personally and also because I’ve gathered some of the responses I think the best way would be from top down because the main barrier is you could have a compost but what do you do with it afterwards right if there is no waste management facility that’s actually coming through and helping you collect that waste it doesn’t really provide an incentive right it creates more labor for people which is not really a driver so I think that if Recology were to approach it or if I were to approach it on a personal level it would be trying to get the city on the same page you can actually participate in a lot of like local legislation groups and you can sign petitions I say you know we want this to be mandated if you get enough tips signatures that will get on a ballot people can vote on it and then things will change so that’s a really nice spot I’m up level that I think a lot of people overlook participating local politics is something that you’ll probably have the biggest effect on what directly touches you these prosthetics and also talk about the holding workshops regarding their parents building towards it because I feel like one time versions this guy you think it’s kind of like a business selling yeah it’s the ultimate Dulwich sort right we want people to buy less stuff and we want to make it really well so it lasts forever so yeah we make a pretty big challenge for ourselves because we’re constantly reaching out to new customers which you know you get across your values but then you figure out okay what are the other things that I need to address right there’s this concept called wicked problems and it’s basically a problem that has so many different facets that if you change one it’ll ultimately create a problem somewhere else and so it kind of is like a domino effect where you can’t kind of you can’t really fix the problem all at once unless you you know erase the whole thing and start over which isn’t really how the world works so yeah by choosing those as our values were then now focusing a lot of our energy on different kinds of campaigns community engagements new customers constantly [Music] using tools that create incense more ways but in a way too [Music] to fix your create this team a lot of sightings here even though you are like okay I want to go back to how you started that question which was 3d printing creates waste so if you’re creating a part that is a component for fixing another thing it’s an additive process also why 3d printing is awesome is it’s an additive process and most things like garment production or wood cutting it’s all reductive you start with something that’s finite and you reduce it to the dimension you actually want 3d printing is awesome because it’s the full opposite of that you build to what you need so you actually don’t really have a waste especially if you’re making that for something else did I get your question [Music] 3d prints yeah yeah if you guys are ever in New York cooper-hewitt has a wonderful exhibit I’m this entire there’s this really cool industries that’s taking off where they use repurposed materials like you can 3d print with algae yeah it’s really cool and I think adidas launched something recently where they take a lot of their old Souls and they’ll basically convert it into the thing the material whatever it is I don’t know what it’s called then it’s like it was plastic petroleum but then it gets converted something else but yeah I definitely think there’s a lot of people out there who are doing alternative material resourcing and that is a super cool thing to get into that’s probably the future yeah um none that I can name off the top of my head but algae fully compostable right that’s a biomaterial yeah there’s all kinds of things there’s people who extract silkworm enzymes and then they mix it with like moon jelly DNA and they can make like glow-in-the-dark material the 3d print from that it’s super cool [Applause]

The EPIC Ninja Star Boomerang! (Amazing Origami/Paper Star)

Hey, what’s up guys it’s Rob and welcometo my tutorial for: The Ninja Star Boomerang! I spoke with Jeremy Shafer about trying to come up with a ninja adept that comesback and while each of us were trying to figure it out, we both came up with ourown designs. Mine is made from half a sheet of printer newspaper and flies likethis … while Jeremy’s is made from for origami squares and flies just like this.I’ll have a link to his tutorial at the end of the video so be sure to check itout! I’m really happy and proud of the Ninja Star Boomerang because it’s notonly easy to originate, but it flies incredibly well. Better than anyboomerang that I’ve made and has quickly become my favorite thing to make.You’regonna want to show it off to all your best friend, so be sure to give it a thumbsup down below if you do enjoy the video! So grab your piece of paper and let’smake it! For the tutorial we’re going to need half a membrane of character width printerpaper just like this which we’ll then divided up again into one-fourths and maketwo same bits which will then fit together and interlock just like theninja suns I most recommend you first try with a plain lily-white sheetbecause although it glances a little nicer with the colored paper, I found out thewhite is a little bit thinner and gusts up flying much better.We can firstly foldthe paper in half by participating in the top and aligning it with the bottom and onceit’s lined up neatly we can make a nice sharp pucker along the top with ourfingernail by move it across a couple duration andyou can either cut it or as I prefers to do time rupture it right in half. To splitthe paper into one-quarters we can do the same exact thing by folding the paper inhalf and join the edges together neatly then we can make a nice sharpcrease along the top and exactly carefully rip the paper in half.Now that we havethe paper in quarterss like the work requires, we can go on to perform the two forces andinterlock them. So, really set one of the articles aside and then we’re going totake the part and we’re going to fold it in half. So merely align the edgestogether, formerly it’s neatly aligned merely make a crease all throughout the paperand time contribute it a nice sharp-witted groove on top. Now we can take the left side and fold it across to the right side, line up thetwo ceases and precisely present it a accommodate here on the right and a tug in the middle andcrease it on the left side.Just lope your fingernail against it once and then youcould open it up so that it’s a ridge crease and that the open hems are on thebottom. Set it down and I’m just going to mark it so that you can see it a littleeasier now. Now, we are also able take the right side and we’re just going to take thistop margin and fold it down onto that vertical line give it a nice wrinkle hereand on the left side we’re just going to do the opposite so we’re gonna make thebottom and fold it up.Once we do that, we can then crease on that brand-new bend so youshould have something like this and we’re just going to flip it over andjust make sure that it’s nice and flat. These next crimps we’re going to make areimportant because it’s going to establish the flapping or the sort of littleAir Foil that we have here on each of the backstages or limbs the boomerang that helpit fly in that nice circle. We’re going to crimp this top edge down to the bottomjust like this, except we’re not going to fold it all the way. We’re going to leavea little bit of opening and as you’ll see here, I’ve made a mark and that assessment isoneeighth of an inch from the bottom.I’m giving you a measurement becauseI think you should probably try it the first time you make it just so you havean idea of about how much that is. And as you’ll see here on the ruler, an eighthof an inch is just mostly that first big increment that we have right here.Now that you know what to do we’re going to take the edge and we’re just going tofold it like this and as you’ll see the whole left side comes along. I’m justgoing to mostly course it up with that word that I drew so this whole left sideshould kind of flip and I’m going to line it up the whole way across and thenmake a nice sharp-worded crimp. Now, I’m going to just feed my fingernail against thetop. Now, we’re going to do the same on the other side so all we need to do isto flip it upside down like this and then we’re going to make this fringe righthere and we’re going to crease it down as well leaving a littlebit of space about an eighth of an inch.I’m going to eyeball at this time but ifyou want to draw the line from the bottom you can. Just take it and fold itdown like this leaving a little bit of gap and make sure that it’s parallelall the way across. Once you have it pretty even all the way on the bottom, then you can obligate that wrinkle on top and only make it a neat good pucker and makesure that you didn’t kind of pull these apart. So it should look something likethis. Now that we procreated those creases, you’ll seeon the figurehead here I have a diamond that I’m containing facing towards me whereas onthe back it’s separate where we folded those two edges.I’m going tobasically take the ends here and I’m just going to hold them like this withthe angles facing towards me I’m going to open them now I’m going to airplaneboth of the recess into this vertical text just like this. So precisely fold itdirectly on that horizontal line now and make a crease and then do the same onthe left side.As you’ll construe, because the left side is thinner it makes a smallertriangle but we both demand these top peripheries immediately on the middle-of-the-road just likethat. Then you can reclose the two edges together and precisely pinch it and make acrease do the same on the other side. Just nursed it like this open it up andjust airplane these recess instantly on to the center and then reclose it so itshould look something like this.Now all we need to do now is basically time foldthese weapons in a little bit it’s not critically important where it is usuallyright around this little point or corner that you experience right here. So I’m justgoing to take it and just fold it like this and you’ll feel some resistance soright when you feel some resistance right around there is good and we’rejust going to make sure that this outside edge is aligned with this one onthe bottom so formerly they’re lined up like this. Then you could just give it a goodpinch. Then you can developed it and you can dothe same with the left side so just take it like this and time promote it up andfold it across and when you feel some resistance, right around this reces now, then all you need to do is to only thread it up and merely pass it a pinch.And thereyou go! That’s how to make one of the bits. Now that we’ve finished the firstpiece, the second piece is stimulated the same exact direction. So if you need to you canrewatch the time that I’ve set out below and when you’re done we’re ready tointerlock the two sections together. Alright people, all that’s left now is tointerlock the two cases together and as you’ll experience I’m comprising them so that thediamonds are facing me on the right side. I proceeded a line from the top of thediamond to the bottom and on the left side I proceeded one from the left to theright. We’re basically just going to take the one on the right and turn it 90 stages and situated it on top of the one on the left. And if you can see, you’re just going to basically overlap the diamonds by kindof putting them right in the middle and sort of overlapping the lines just likethat.So right around there is good. I’m goingto start with the top forearm and we’re going to fold it down and we’re going togo in a clockwise direction. So that’s one, then we go now that’s two. Youcan move these around if you need to because they are going to startoverlapping. So now we go this is three. As you’ll see if it gets a littlescrunched up then you really can move move it around like this. Shift this down thelast one here is going to go over this one the third one and underneath thefirst one kind of under here.So what I’m going to do is hold it now and I’mgoing to lift up the first one by only attracting it out like this. I’m gonnapinch it right here and I’m going to make the last arm and merely round it offa little bit and then I’m going to stick the pitch right into that opening rightthere and I’m going to gather it through. Now, when you attract these through you wantto make sure that they go up to the bends that you kind of established before. Soyou want to reach up the first one that you plucked out just like this kind ofpush it in. While you’re prod in the other oneslike this and make sure that it’s nice and flat in the middle. You can kind of tugboat on the opposite ones a little bit like this, and there you go! You’ll see it will come together sort of like that. So time make sure it’s niceand flat in the middle once you get it all interlocked. Then all we need to do is basically take this littleoverlap this little flap and we’re going to fold it right along this hem so justtake it and fold it right the whole way down I’m going to set it down on thetable because it’s a little easier for me.Just gonna take the edge and fold itall the way down on there as you’ll notice when you do that it doesn’t wantto fold in the area now, that’s okay. You merely need to leave it a little bitcurved. So really press it like that right in the angle then justrotate it fold this one down now the whole way. Then the next one fold it down andjust walk my digit up right there and then finally we’ll do the last one.There you go there is your ninja star boomerang. Now what I like to do is tojust run my fingernail over all of the wrinkles peculiarly these right here youwant to make sure it’s nice and flat. So exactly press it down like this upside downand you’re ready to throw it! I’m going to hold the boomerang so that the fourinterlocked cartons are facing the left side with the air foils and my pointerand centre paw are grabbing one of the arms just like this close to the end.I’m going to rest the other arm of the boomerang on my palmright near my thumb like this, and I’m going to basically curl my wrist and I’mgoing to flick it out like that like I would with a yoyo.You could do itdirectly out but I also recommend you can do it up like this at like atwenty or thirty degree angle. Alright so I’m just gonna basically go like thisand flick my wrist really hard and exhaust the boomerang. Okay so let’s giveit a shot! Thank you guys so much for watching mytutorial for my allnew Ninja Star Boomerang designing if you did like itdon’t forget to give it a thumbs up down below and if you’re not alreadysubscribed click that subscribe and notification bell so that you know whenI come out with a new video.To check out Jeremy’s tutorial for his boomerang youcan click this little card here in the upper right and I’ll place the link inthe video description below. After you shed the ninja star boomerang a coupletimes you might notice it starts to get a little bent or it might not come backas well. What you need to do after every duet throws is just flatten it out andreinforce the wrinkles to make it flight great again. If you find when you throwthe boomerang that it thumps the field or it doesn’t come back all the way or evenif it shoots off in the other direction what you can do is hold these four boxeson the bottom and tilt the backstages up like this ever so slightly and you shouldnotice that the boomerang will come back a little better.With some rehearsal, propelling and catching it you’ll obviously become a ninja star boomerangpro in no time. As ever thanks so much better for the carry I’ll see you soon !.

DIY Japanese Bookbinding Tutorial | 4-Hole | Sea Lemon

In this tutorial, I’ll register you how to do a 4hole Japanese binding. Here’s a list of the equipment and toolsthat I’ll be using. I’m employ 8 inch by 11 inch paper for the whole book. First I’m going to make a template for the obliging faults. Take one of the inside sheets and make aline 1 inch text from the spine’s edge. Then fold the paper in half three times. Now revealed the working paper, and commemorate 4 excavations spaced out like this. My book is too thick to stir excavations all the way through in one shot. So I’m dividing my diary into sets of about 5 sheets, and using my template as a leader to offset the holes. You can clip the organizes together to keep them in place. To move the holes, you can use a shaft punch tool, or an awl. To learn more about the fuck swipe that I’m exploiting, check out the video to the left. If you don’t have an awl, check out the video to the right for a speedy substitute.You can also find these joins in thedescription below. Now, exerting the template as a steer, prepare the obliging holes. After you have punched some pages, you can also use those sheets or the handle as a template very. After all the holes are made, it’s time to bind. I’m utilize waxed cotton yarn, single woven , no knot. For Japanese binding, it’s better to have more thread than to run out. To estimate how much thread to use, I’m going to perform the segment about five times the height of my record. First take a portion of the pages andstart from the bottom on the second hole. Leave about 4 or 5 inches( 13 cm) on the end. And tuck it between, so it’s going towardsthe other mission of the book. This is where the final braid will be tied. Then wrap around to the bottom of thebook, and back through like this. Then to the next pit, wrap around and back through. When you reach the last hole, wrap around and back through again, then wrap around on the end and backthrough.Now weave through the rest of the holes to theother end, wrap around the same way and back to the 2nd pit you started from. When you reach the 2nd opening, returnthe needle in between where the end of the thread is. And bind the 2 resolves together in a knot. You can pull on them a little to makesure the binding isn’t too loose. Then chipped the ends off. I hope you experienced this tutorial supportive, and feel free to like or leave your observes below.

You see it’s about 30 C in the shade today, so yeah it’s ridiculously sizzling, that’s 86 F for you American chaps, I had to look thatup a second ago. Anyway, let’s go straight into drawing somesushi. Alright so you employed a expanse of Nori onto abamboo flattening matted with a plastic purse on it and then only sodden your hands a little bitwith some ocean so the rice doesn’t stick to you.And what I’m using here is 120 g of cookedsushi rice , now you can learn how to make this by a relation that has just appeared on thetop left corner, and simply precisely spread it out. Only spread it over half of it , now 120 g isabout 4oz, only spread it out neat and softly, flub it out, don’t press it down. You truly just just wanted to separate the riceover the surfaces, you don’t want to compress it. That happens later when you reel it, thenyou precisely snap it over and then on the empty-bellied place is where I am going to articulated my fill. What you do is you lay three tempura prawns, now you can learn how to perform these by clicking on the link that has just appeared on thetop left corner, which will make you to a video of mine where you learn how to makethis.Now you just compute three slice of avocado anda little bit of Unagi Sauce, unagi sauce is eel sauce, you can this in any Japanese foodstore, otherwise exactly buy it online or you can buy it from my storage. A tie-up has just appeared on the top left cornerand you can buy it there. Alright so now to roll, you just simply bringit over and then simply pull away, and then only pull forward and like so. If you need any more reference about it thenjust click on the link which appeared on the top left corner and that’s a video about flattening. Alright, perfect this is Unagi or grilledeel. Now it’s very difficult to find this fresh, fresh eels here in Spain where I lives and probably various regions of the world, too.So it’s best just to buy the froze stuff, it comes previously grilled and ready to go. It will last for a very long time in the freezer, you just thaw it and I would suggest grilling it a little bit inside the oven or on a littlebarbeque coal, don’t burn it though. Just a little bit of grilling, precisely to revitalizeall the spices in there. Anyway it’s very simple, you guys know howto open cartons, it’s not a little complicated, exactly attract it out and this is more or lesshow it looks a lot like.

Anyway, you only need about half for the sushiroll to put on top and the other half you can make another sushi roll with or made itinside a sushi bun, that’s fine, simply include some avocado, paprika, a little bit of unagisauce good to go. And it’s very important, I prefer to havethis served heated just don’t unthaw it and contribute it out, at least employed it in the microwaveminimum, bare minimum, but best would be a charcoal grill or grill it a little underneaththe oven. Now formerly you grill this it does become verysoft so I would suggest being very careful with it.Alright now to finish the sushi roll, I havegrilled my eel and what you do is just place it on top like so, and you miss the tail tocome out there like so perfect. Now you lent a piece of cling film, merely tofix it all together and now press it onto the sushi roll so everything is one piecenow, like so perfect. Now you make your spear, plunge it in some waterso the blade is slightly wet and what you want to do is cut it about here perfect. And now precisely cut your sushi reels to the requiredlength alright, perfect. Now to mold it up again, and you remove thecling film and now you take a little strip of Nori and just adhere it on like so. Now these are half sheets and then cut intolittle deprives. You don’t want them to cover the part eel, only you want to keep it together because otherwise what happens is the entire sushiroll will fall apart when you try to take one I’ve known this a lot of hours, it’s really annoying, so like to do it like this.Okay, beautiful, so now to plate it up youjust simply put them onto a illustration like so, and this here is like the dragon’s tail. Now to decorate it, what you want to kept issome octopus suckers and this would be the eyes. I really have these lying around but if yougo to the fish market and ask him to chop off a couple of chumps, he will be happyto oblige, I think.A quick little garnish for the dragon go, this is half cucumber, and basically what you do is just slice it in very thin wedges, okay. All the way across alright, excellent. Now you just take the side components apart. Okay now what you do is just line them up, viewed it together and put your knife at a 45 slant and cut…perfect. Discard this and now what you want to do ispeel off about half and merely fan them out like so. Okay, take a couple away if it’s too thickand then take a couple more and then fan them out the opposite way just like so. Now situated this on the side and that’s garnishfor the dragon roster. Now you make your cucumber and you put oneon one side and the other one on the opposite side, just like so, push the sushi reels togetherso it remains threw, and now two of these paprika slice perfect.Alright so you just take a deep fried shrimphead and you pull the “hairs-breadths” off , now you make the whiskers of the prawn and you justpush them into your very soft eel, it shouldn’t be too difficult. Perfect. Alright so now to finish it off with somesauces.

[ music] Sarah: Hey people, it’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today I’ll be re-examine the Luxury BambooSheet specified from Hotel Comfort. I’m going to tell you a little bit about whatI like, what I don’t like, and for whom these will be especially beneficial. Let’s get started.[ music] Sarah: Now that we got the membranes on the bunked, let’s talk about what they’re made of. These sheets are made from 100 percent naturalbamboo fibers, which have a reputation of originating terribly, exceedingly soft material. The report contains several types of bamboo. This happens to be bamboo viscose, which isregarded as one of the softest types of bamboo. Many sleepers have equated the feel to silkor cashmere, for example. Each plan contains one top sheet, one fittedsheet, and two pillow disputes. This set that I’m testing is a queen sizeset, but if you do prescribe a king size set, it comes with king size pillow disputes. You’ll notice on most bamboo bedding commodities, there’s no thread count revealed. The general rule of thumb is, 1,000 threadcount of cotton to respond to 250 thread count of bamboo.Bamboo is definitely the softer information. Now that we know what these sheets are madeof, let’s see how they feel, and how well they stays on the mattress.[ background seems only] Sarah: As promised, the feel of these sheetsis incredibly soft. Really merely silky, light-headed, airy, breathablematerial. I can feel how it dangles over my person. I can’t stop scratching the material.I just think it feels so soothing and silkyon my scalp. The pillow suits are pretty vast. Like I said, this is a queen specified that I’mtesting. You would, of course, get king size pillowcases with a king size set. These are accommodating a jolly sizable pillowright now, and they’ve still got a little bit of area to spare. The opening has this nice flap of fabric, so that you don’t actually see inside of the pillow case, a neat aesthetic ethic there. A common ailment that sleepers have aboutsheets is that the fitted sheet becomes untucked throughout the night.Maybe they toss and turn, and wake to findthat the sheet has become untucked. I can tell you after reeling around quitea bit in these expanses, that has not happened. All four corners are still snugly stowed underthe mattress. Overall, these sheets have a great feel. Like I said, the essential points to meis how they feel on my mas, and to me these are incredibly soothing, pleasant, softsheets. For tribes who are looking for something silky, glowing, and breathable, these are a great option. The tolls of these expanses straddle from 249 to 450, but if a hypoallergenic expanse change will improve your quality of life, it mightbe worth it. There are a lot of things to like about thissheet set.To refer a few cases, the natural properties of bambooare to be sweat wicking and cooling, so if you heat up during the night, these will bebeneficial for you. Another immense thing about bamboo is it’s naturallyhypoallergenic, so if you have allergies, confidential scalp, these are especially beneficialfor you. Something enormou about Hotel Comfort is theylet you try these membranes for 100 dates before you have to make any decisions. That’s a very long time for even the most indecisivesleeper. My favorite thing about these membranes is justhow incredibly soft they are. They feel astounding on my scalp, and at the endof the day, that’s the most important factor for me. There are a few cons to this sheet defined. Firstly, the coloring I received does not exactlymatch the pigment represented on the website.It’s not a huge deal, but if you’re pickingsomething other than white, it’s something to bear in mind for sure. One other thing about these expanses is they wrinkleand crease easily. Regrettably, you cannot iron them, or itwould ruin information materials. If you want to get the wrinkles out withouthaving to go through the entire wash process, precisely fling them in the dryer on a low install, and shake the wrinkles out. One interesting thing about these sheets is whilethey’re lovely, light, and breathable, they’re very light, and truly not intended to keepyou warm. While they might be perfect for summertime experience, I would definitely switch to something heavier when the winter rolls around. Well, that’s it for now.

Purple Sheets Review – Are Bamboo Sheets Soft and Stretchy Enough?

[ background music] Sarah: Hey, guys. It’s Sarah from Sleepopolis. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the Purplebed sheet. As “youre seeing” I haven’t even unboxed themyet. I’m just as stimulated as you are to see what’sinside. Now, some of you might already be familiarwith Purple’s mattresses or the Purple pillow. If you want to check out our reviews of thosePurple makes, precisely Google Sleepopolis Purple and it’ll be the first things that pop up. For this review, we’ll be taking a close examinationof Purple’s bed sheets. I’m going to show you what I like about them, what I’m not crazy about, and for whom I consider these expanses might be particularly beneficial.Of track, there is a wide world of beddingout there. If after this video you’re not so sure thatthis sheet situate is the one for you, simply Google Sleepopolis Best Sheets and we’ll helpyou find the one that is. All right, let’s get started.[ background music] Sarah: OK, this I’m fully sustain for a hairband. I officially got the sheets out of the boxand onto the mattress. Right apart, I’m thinking there’s no way thisis bamboobased bedclothe because every define of bamboo sheets I’ve ever tested have beenvery wrinkly.As you can see, these are completely wrinklefree. They have this smooth sound. I’m just impressed that the issue is, in fact, made from a fusion of viscose from bamboo and spandex. Now, the tribes at Purple say that bamboobasedfabric becomes for the very best bed sheets. While that is, of course, a subjective sentiment, the fabric derived from bamboo does have a reputation for being naturally breathable, moisturewicking, super soft. If you want to know more about the benefits ofbamboobased bunking, I do go into deeper detail in my full written revaluation, which islinked below. Now, as “youre seeing”, I’ve got it in the sandcolor. That’s what it’s called, sand.However, Purple does proposal their membrane setsin a variety of emblazons, including their signature purple color, which from what I’ve seen isvery purple. What are you getting with each Purple sheetset? You’re getting a top expanse, a fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. Right now, I’m on the Purple 3 mattress. Of track, you don’t need to use a Purplemattress in order to enjoy Purple sheets. However, the kinfolks at Purple do say that thesesheets were designed with the Purple mattresses in attention. They’re stretchy quality and as you can seethey are super stretchy. The stretchy tone is designed to complementthe stretchy and rubbery sort of the mattresses so that the expanses are flexing with the mattressin this unique to Purple way. The fitted sheet, as you can see here, iscapable of accommodating mattresses up to 16 inches deep. That’s pretty deep pockets.This particular mattress is about 12 inchesdeep. I time tucked the excess fabric tightly underthe mattress so I are able to obtain that snug fit. Now, for the pillowcases, this is the Purplepillow if you couldn’t tell. It’s 10 pounds. I just wanted you Purple loyalists out thereto get a look at what the Purple pillow looks like within the Purple pillowcase. As you can see, there’s plenty of room tospare. It more than alters this pillow. Something I don’t love is that the openingis on the side. There’s a little of this pillow spillageout of now. It’s a pet peeve of mine, but we’ll get intothat last-minute. Really so you can see what it looks like accommodatinga standard size pillow, a little less room to spare here, a little less excess fabrichanging out. My first impression is that they are supersmooth to the touch. I’m also getting the sense that they’re verybreathable, very light and airy, which is great for sizzling sleepers like myself who aretrying to stave off those darknes sweats at night.Of track, the only way to get a sense forthis bedding is to roll around in it. Let’s check it out.[ background music) Sarah: OK, so first things first. These are the stretchiest membranes I’ve evertested. The first thing I’m noticing is that thismaterial is plucking with me. It’s got this immediate, precisely stretchy responsewhen I pull on it. Right off the bat, it’s giving me these uniquevibes that I’m into. Secondly, the most important factor for mewhen I’m picking the bedding that’s right for me is how the fabric feels against mybare skin. I can tell you this specific fabric feelsso smooth to the touch. I can’t stop scratching my hands all over thesheets. Now the fitted sheet is another thing I’mloving because there’s no gaping or no bunching of any kind.This stretchy tone is serving to help itadhere very tightly to the mattress. Like I said, you can pluck it, of course, and it’ll bounce right back, but there’s no unkempt search bunching, or gaping, or anythinglike that. That’s important to me. Speaking of the fitted sheet, another mostimportant factor for me when I’m picking the pillow that I like is how well the fittedsheet actually stays put one over the mattress.I’m a bit of a restless combo sleeper, soI need to know that amidst all my tossing and turning, the fitted sheet is never goingto become untucked. I can tell you I’m pleased to report thatamidst all my tossing, and turning, and switching situations, the fitted sheet never even closeto became untucked. It does come given with a exceedingly thick elasticband that encircles the boundaries of the fitted sheet. That’s doing a great job of keeping this fittedsheet on the mattress. Something that I’m not crazy about from anaesthetic perspective are the pillowcases. This stretchy quality is building them lookalmost a little baggy on the pillow, specially the Purple pillow. The Purple pillow is not a noble-minded pillow rightoff the at-bat. There’s a ton of excess fabric. I precisely don’t think it lookings that enormous, tobe honest.Not to mention, I do prefer the envelope closuresthat some pillowcases offer wherein there’s a little flap of fabric that treats the pillowinside. You’re not getting this pillow spillage orthe label sticking out. The pillow actions I’m not crazy about. Nonetheless, I am a very hot sleeper. One thing I’m noticing for sure is that theseare super cooling. They’re so cozy, but likewise so light-headed and breathable.As I billow this top sheet over me, I canliterally feel the aura spurting through the fabric. It’s actively serving to cool me down, which, like I said, is super important to me because I am a yearround hot sleeper. I “re saying” I consider these to be special. They creating something distinct to the sheet game. I think they’d be a pretty good addition toanyone’s bedroom collection.There’s a lot to been fucking loving the Purple sheets, but exactly to specify a few cases of my favourites. Bamboobased berthing does have a reputation, like I said, for being naturally breathable, moisturewicking, and cooling. I did find that to be the case with theseparticular membranes. As I was flattening around in berthed, I was definitelyenjoying some cooling convenience which, like I said, is particularly important to hot sleeperslike myself. Something that I thought was special and uniqueabout these membranes is the manner in which they flex with the Purple mattress.Now the stretchiness of these sheets combineswith the stretchiness of the hyperelastic polymer inside the Purple mattress. It offers this allembracing sink into thematerial. It stirs “i m feeling” precisely wholly immersed inPurple. If you are a Purple fan, I have to say thatthe Purple expanses and the Purple mattress complement each other very well. Now when I’m on the hunt for bedding or myself, I do prioritize easy moisten caution. I’m pleased to report that these membranes areboth machine washable and dryable. Simply rinse on a freezing cycles/second, tumble baked on lowheat, and you’re good to go. There are a few things about these sheetsthat some kinfolks might consider to be detriments. Firstly, like I said, they’re super lightand airy.They’re doing a very good job of saving me cool. If you’re a sleeper who likes expanses thatare a little more warm and cozy, you might want to find something that’s a little bitheavier in heavines and, like I said, a little bit more warming. As this is, like I said, very light, extremely breathable, and very cooling. Another thing, and this is totally a matterof personal advantage, is that while I acquired the membranes to complement the Purple mattressso seamlessly, I can’t say the same thing for the Purple pillow. Like I said, this pillowcase in my opinionis just way too big for the Purple pillow. As you can see, it’s also highly stretchy. The stretchiness combined with the size, itjust doesn’t look great in my opinion. From an aesthetic perspective , not standard. Of track, it does not detract from how supersoft and smooth it feels against your scalp, which I love.I’m just not cherishing the space the pillowcaseslook on the pillow. They don’t look that enormous, in my opinion, on the standard size pillow either. There’s just a lot of baggy excess chamber. If you don’t have a king size pillow, you’rejust going to be working with a good deal of additional fabric. Which generates me to my final point. Oftentimes, berthing brands will render sleeperstrial periods wherein you have a month or sometimes more to test the bedding, see ifit’s the right are suitable for you. If it’s not, simply move it on back for a refund. Nonetheless , not only are there no trial periodsfor the Purple expanses, but there’s no returns either. Before you buy Purple expanses, you have tobe pretty positive that these are the ones for you.Well, that wrappers up its consideration of the report.[ background music] Sarah: For every last detail on these expanses, be sure to check out my full written review that you can find by Googling SleepopolisPurple Expanse.
