Enjoy this series of traditional furoshiki wrapping cloths that can only be found in Japan.
The Cotton Furoshiki Cloth Large | Moonlit Winter is a premium furoshiki from the esteemed Japanese maker, Sanyo Shoji. The full moon shines in the dark night, illuminating the snowfall that is beginning to cover the tsubaki red camellia plants with a light layer of snow. Although winter can be cold in Japan, the red tsubaki camellia flowers still bloom, looking spectacular against the white snow.
Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths (Wikipedia). They can be used as an impromptu bag, for wrapping things for storage, as eco-friendly reusable gift wrapping, and more! With this furoshiki being especially large, it can be used as small curtains, a tapestry, or even as a decorated painting; the options are limitless. 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.
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.
