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 with movement that seems to match the wavering fishnet grid.  Caught in the net are little wreaths of tachibana flowers and what could be wisteria or paulownia. Reversible.

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