Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese square wrapping cloth, tied and neatly knotted to transport gifts and food. The custom of wrapping objects first began in Japan during the Edo period and is now a responsible way of wrapping books, presents and lunch boxes. Our cotton wrapping cloths are hand block-printed by artisans in Jaipur. Each wooden block is skilfully hand-carved then carefully lined up by eye on the fabric. Packaged in a reusable envelope with tying instructions. One larger cloth, one small.
Machine wash 30ºC. 100% cotton.
Made in India.
Printed by hand using a traditional block print. A little unevenness in colour and design is characteristic of this hand process.
Large cloth 60 x 60cm. Small cloth 40 x 40cm.
