Furoshiki. A simple square of fabric. Uncomplicated yet boundlessly versatile and useful. How very Japanese!
Furoshiki are used for an infinite number of things – bundling items, wrapping up food (it can work double-duty as your napkin), as a table cover, an elegant way to present a gift, as a head scarf or belt ... the utility of a furoshiki cannot be overstated. One of the things that makes us happiest, though, is the fact that they are so eco-friendly. Furoshiki are the antithesis of disposable or “single-use.” They are meant to be used until they wear out.
Momo has just received an array of 100% cotton furoshiki from Tokyo. Engagingly graphic in design (we call them Scandinasian), they range from 20" to 40" square. Here’s a peek at more of our whimsical patterns and colors:
