History of Furoshiki

The name "Furoshiki" comes from the Japanese word "Furo" which translates
to bath.
In the 14th century, when samurai and nobles took a bath, they used kimonos
wrapped in Furoshiki or laid it on the floor for changing clothes.
While they were in the bath, they wrapped their clothes in a Furoshiki to keep
them from getting wet. After bathing, they wrapped their wet washcloth and
towel in a Furoshiki to carry them home.
After that, Furoshiki spread to the ordinary people and became an indispensable
item for carrying various things like square and round objects, long items and
even bottles.
Wrapping with auspiciously colored/designed Furoshiki has been believed to
keep gifts nice and clean.
Furoshiki is a piece of cloth used to express respect and wish good luck as well.
After late in 19 centuries, paper bags and plastic bags have begun to be
distributed instead of Furoshiki, Furoshiki has become less used.
However, recently, global warming and environmental pollution have become
problems around the world, the goodness of Furoshiki has been re-recognized
and the new material of Furoshiki has also appeared and is now being used as
an eco-bag instead of paper bag/plastic bag.
Furoshiki is a tradition in Japanese culture and still used in daily life for wrapping, shopping bags, decorating as tapestries, and storing disaster prevention goods.
We hope you enjoy Furoshiki as a Japanese culture.
