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) 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 fun and festive wrapping cloth that could easily add color as a table cloth or wall hanging.  A deep indigo blue background with a circle or large peonies outlined in wide white lines, and some petals dyed blue, yellow, red or orange.  

The cotton is sturdy and a bit heavier than usual - more jacket weight than sheet weight.  Reversible!

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