Furoshiki can be made of a variety of silk, cotton, rayon and nylon. It is a wrapping cloth skill that is used to transport anything, like wrapping or transport lunch boxes….. In ancient Nara period of the days, people use this skill for bundle clothes in public bath. This skill is good to prevent things to mix-up of other clothes bundle…….Today it is more like the wrapping flat folded bundle(hirazutsumi平包) to serve as a meaning for products to transport, protect and decorate. As the matter of the fact, it has been an increased interest as people concern of environmental protection where it promotes caring reducing waste(No Need plastic bags!) by using this fun Furoshiki wrapping cloth skill.
