Furoshiki - Japanese textile for wrapping and as a bag

Furoshiki is a square shaped textile, used traditionally to wrap and/or transport things in Japan. 

The first Furoshiki found is in Nara period (710 - 794 AD), which was called tsutsumi (wrapping) found in Shosoin Temple.

Furo means bath in Japanese and the name Furoshiki derived from the fact that the cloth was used to wrap clothes to go to public bath. 

Traditionally the material used were cotton or silk, however, these days you can find synthetic materials as well.

There are so many different ways to wrap, which makes it into a bag or to wrap wine bottles, Bento box or any other onject you wish to wrap!

Why not find your favorite Furoshiki and use it in your daily life?
