Furoshiki date back to the Nara
period (710 - 794).
Furoshiki were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods.
Today, furoshiki are used for wrapping and carrying a Bento lunchbox, as a
table mat, and other
various decorations. Because Furoshiki are a good substitute for a plastic
they're great for the environment.
Enjoy furoshiki for sewing, quilting, decoration, wrapping, gift, and tapestry.
