The wrapping culture of Japan has developed across more than 1,000 years, and wrapping things in cloth is said to have already been a custom by the Nara period (710-794 CE). Furoshiki continue to be used in many ways, from binding precious objects as a means to protect them, to wrapping gifts decoratively, during bathing, or to carry objects from place to place.
These 100% cotton furoshiki are printed one by one on an old roller printing machine. The double-sided dyeing of this fabric is a delicate process that requires a high level of skill, to ensure that the dye from one side doesn’t penetrate the fabric and show on the other side too.

Handwashing recommended.
