Stylish Furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) for Everyday Use

Stylish Furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) for Everyday Use

Furoshiki (Japanse wrapping cloth) continues to evolve in various ways 

The tradition of using Furoshiki to wrap and store precious items, or as a formal gesture during occasions like engagement ceremonies and formal visits, is still preserved today. However, recently, there's been a growing trend of incorporating Furoshiki into everyday use beyond such occasions. With a variety of materials and designs available, it's not surprising to see increased interest from generations who haven't traditionally used Furoshiki, as well as from international audiences. Furoshiki is gaining popularity as a fashionable item, with innovative usage ideas emerging alongside.


Here is an introduction to just a few of the uses:




・Lunch mat

・Book cover


Not only in design and size, but also in material variety, including some with water-repellent coatings.

Items with water-repellent coatings further expand their range of uses. They can be used to protect your bag from rain, as a substitute for a picnic blanket, or even as a tablecloth.


These are just a few examples, but the charm of Furoshiki, which continues to evolve with various uses, is expanding rapidly.  


Furoshiki, versatile for various purposes like this. At Wa-in, we offer a selection of furoshiki in different patterns, sizes, and materials from the renowned Japanese furoshiki maker, Musubi.
