This listing is for a vintage Japanese furoshiki - a very handy, sturdy, multi-use cloth in Japan.  Higher quality (usually silk) furoshiki are traditionally used as gift wrap; more casual versions (often cotton or rayon) are used for shopping, transporting goods, or storing seasonal bedding. These days furoshiki are popular as upcycled grocery totes or to carry whatever we used to carry in a non-recycleable plastic bag. For a short history of furshiki, watch the video below.

This furoshiki is a light rayon crepe in a rich vermillion color - plain except for a border of black and white swirls on just two sides.  This asymetrical patterning makes for more interesting gift wrapping bows. Printed on one side only. 

Furoshiki are typically a bit longer on one side than the other. See tabs below for more details about this particular furoshiki.
