A luxurious 2-piece set for Furoshiki wrapping cloth made of "Chirimen" crepe Yuzen fabric.
The motifs are two representative works of the Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji drawn by Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), one of Japan’s leading Ukiyo-e artists.
As the wrapping cloth of 1,300 years ago is stored in Shosoin, Japanese people have cherished the culture of wrapping since ancient times.
The meaning of the name for Furoshiki comes from the cloth. It used when taking a public sauna bath and it was used to wrap their clothes or stand on it.
It is called Furoshiki since the middle of Edo era, the 18 centuries.
The traditional fabric called Chirimen crepe is a kind of plain-woven cloth for kimono.
This material, rayon Chirimen crepe, has a luster like silk and creates a sense of luxury.
It also looks like a modern art when it becomes a three-dimentional shape according to the way of wrapping, for example, when you wrap the bottle of sake!
Recommended Furoshiki not only for a wrapping cloth but also as a room interior such as a tapestry. As a gift, too.
It also contributes to the sustainable society by reducing waste.
Why don’t you start a wonderful Furoshiki life?
