One of Japan’s most historically significant everyday accessories, the Furoshiki’s history is one that goes back 1,200 years. Today’s Furoshiki cloth was initially used during the Nara Period (710 – 794) as cloth protection for precious items often found in Japanese temples. Its role began to shift in the Heian period (794 – 1185) when onsen-going lords did not want to get their kimonos mixed up, so they wrapped their clothes in Furoshiki with their family’s crest on it.
Furoshiki is a square-shaped cloth used in Japan to wrap items and carry them. Being made of cloth, Furoshiki can be stored easily, are very light and can wrap many different inds of shapes. For those reasons, Furoshiki is convenient for day-to-day needs. They can be used to wrap several small goods together or wrap one bulky item, like a wine bottle or a large sake bottle. In addition to these advantages, Furoshiki can be washed like other cloth when they get dirty. Japanese re-acknowledged that Furoshiki is also environmentally friendly, it became even more popular. Our Furoshiki is made of linen, yet it is durable and easy to make a knot.
