Transcript:How to Fold a T-Shirt, Japanese Style

Hi, I'm Nick Jaynes for About.com and I am going to demonstrate for you the Japanese style of t-shirt folding.

How to Fold the T-Shirt

Think of the t-shirt in half. That's about here. Then imagine three points on the t-shirt, again on the same line. We're going to start with point A, point B, and point C. Pinch together point A. Pinch point B. Fold to point C. Pull point A through. Lay it down. Do a little smoothing, correcting. You'll get better at this as you go. And fold it over onto the sleeve. And there you have it.

Another Demonstration of T-Shirt Folding

If that first time was too quick, don't worry. I am going to do it one more time for you. Imagine the t-shirt in half. Now imagine along another axis, go width, go length, point A, point B, and point C. Alright, pinch A, pinch B, pull to point C, pull point A through. Lay it down. Do a little fixing, a little smoothing out. Fold over onto the sleeve and there you have it: a perfectly folded shirt.
