Ukiyo-e (浮世絵; pictures of the Floating World) is a form of traditional Japanese art popular during the 17th to 19th centuries. Artists made woodblock prints and paintings of beautiful scenes that hark back to the Japan of old. Scenes included female beauties, Kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, folklore, historical depictions, landscape and travel, and many more.

Product Description

The Hokusai Ukiyo-e Furoshiki | Kajikazawa In Kai Province (甲州石班沢 ; Kōshū Kajikazawa) is considered to be a masterpiece. This furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloths) is taken from the world of the famous Ukiyo-e artist, Hokusai; as part of his Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, this stunning image cemented Hokusai’s fame, and became one of the most iconic pieces of Japanese art.
The composition is organized by the careful repetition of two triangular shapes. The fishing lines and the promontory form a triangle which echos the distant shape of Mount Fuji emerging from the cloudy waves. 
Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths (Wikipedia). They can be used as as an impromptu bag, for wrapping things for storage, as eco-friendly reusable gift wrapping, and more! Furoshiki have been making a comeback in Japan in recent years, as a beautiful and "green" way of gift giving and beautifying one's daily life.  We've got more design in our furoshiki collection available right here, and even a useful DVD teaching you how to get the best of this bento boxes best friend.
How to wrap a bento box in a furoshiki:
Place the bento box in the middle of the furoshiki. If the box is square in shape, place it on the diagonal, so the sides are facing the corners of the cloth. Bring two opposite corners of the cloth over the box and tie securely. Then, bring the other two corners over the cloth, and tie again. You can also find instructions online for wrapping different objects in creative ways, such as how to wrap a wine bottle to make a handle for bringing wine to parties. See this page for more furoshiki wrapping and tying ideas.
