Bit of History
Japan has an ancient culture, and the furoshiki is one of the tools that Japanese people have used as a part of their daily life for centuries. The furoshiki was first used an incredible 1200 years ago, where it was used to wrap and protect the Emperor’s treasure in Nara. Even today, modern Japanese people use this cloth to protect their own valuable objects! The ancient traditions behind using the furoshii cloth come with this cultural significance imbued in it; Japanese people using wrapping and tying their possessions—or even child—in a furoshiki are engaging in a timeless ceremony of love, care and respect.
When sending a gift to a friend or loved one, wrapping it inside a furoshiki also becomes a deeply thoughtful gift—especially when compared to using carelessly disposable wrapping paper! Furoshiki can make a wonderful gift idea for a loved one, or a unique and ecologically-friendly way to store your precious possessions in style. Made from 100% cotton and woven in the traditional manner, our long-lasting furoshiki follow a long, proud Japanese tradition that is still relevant today.
