HISTORY OF FUROSHIKI

The Furoshiki is a piece of traditional cloth that once folded can be used to carry various objects.

He appeared in Japan in the eighth century (Nara period) to put valuables. Its use will evolve over time to become a method of fast transport and easy movement of business, very convenient in these times of war and fire.

This is the fourteenth century (Muromachi period) it takes the name of furoshiki. It was then also used by the nobles when they took their bath.

The merchants used the furoshiki much for their displacement and to have their goods there.

With the advent of plastic bags in the twentieth century its use was less common, but today the ecological trend in Japan with the fight against waste and will reduce waste to using furoshiki of your taste of the day.

USING FUROSHIKI

Contrary to tenugui there are different sizes of furoshiki, but the format will always be square, and different tissues, although cotton is increasingly used as more resistant.


There are many ways to use a furoshiki:


  • To transport its business (bento bottle ....)
  • Wrap various objects (substitution of gift wrapping, cover a bottle, around a flower pot, book cover)
  • Make it a fashion item (scarf, hair band, purse, backpack)
  • For decoration (placed fabric on a table, hang on the wall)

 

Increasingly more and more popular now, it is part of "must-have gifts to buy" for tourists in Japan.
