Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth
Furoshiki are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth mainly used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Furoshiki began to be used in the middle of the Nara period (AD 710 to 794), in Japanese baths (Onsen). In order to prevent a mix up of the bathers' clothes, the removed clothing was tied up in Furoshiki. Later the system of folding spread and was used by traders to protect their goods or gifts.
