Furoshiki is a versatile square cloth that has been used in Japan for centuries.
In the Edo period (1603-1867), it was used to wrap and carry things, and was used like a bag. Today, its ecological style is being reevaluated, and various ways of tying furoshiki as non-disposable wrapping paper or shopping bags are being introduced on Youtube and other media.
Uno Chiyo (1897-1996) was a Japanese novelist and essayist active in the Taisho, Showa, and Heisei eras. Known for her versatility, she was also an editor, kimono designer, and businesswoman. This furoshiki is designed using cherry blossoms, which Chiyo Uno loved all her life. The color is austere and the cherry blossoms are cute. It is the perfect size to wrap a stacked box (bento box) for cherry blossom viewing. Of course, it can also be used as a tapestry to liven up a room.
