Furoshiki , the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth is used to wrap things. It has more than 1,200 years-old history and had been widely used until the end of the Edo Period.
Furoshiki started out as the cloth in which people carried their clothes but later it came to be used to carry or to wrap almost anything of various shapes.
The most commonly-used are furoshiki, squares measuring 70cm (27.5 inch) or 90cm (35.5 inch) wide.
Wrapping of goods implies respects to others on the gift-giving occasion, then giving special meanings to wrapping materials and wrapped goods.
Being compact when folded and good for reuse, furoshiki is the eco-friendly wrapping cloth.
You can experience both Furoshiki wrapping and Kyo-Yuzen dyeing.
