Small Size 'squirrel & Acorns' Furoshiki Cotton Japanese Fabric For Sale

Small Size 'squirrel & Acorns' Furoshiki Cotton Japanese Fabric

If you buy more than one design, to get the flat rate shipping special detailed below, please wait for me to make a single combined invoice with the adjusted shipping total before you pay. Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths. This one features a squirrel hunting for acorns(donguri gari) in a fall scene among fallen gingko leaves. The last furoshiki picture shows the reverse side, which is lovely in its own right! It's about 50cm x 50cm(19.69" x 19.69") and like my other furoshiki, is a heavier weight, high quality 100% cotton. It can of course be used as a furoshiki cloth to wrap a small gift, though its petite size makes it best in this regard for smaller items, allowing for enough room to tie it. The rich colors and texture and size make it ideal for home decor or quilting projects, too!

Airmail anywhere in the world is just $3. Please check out my other listings for more furoshiki! These make great gifts, and I'm offering a special flat rate shipping charge, too. Buy more than one of these small furoshiki of any designs that ship for $3 each, and you'll pay a flat $3 shipping for all of them. Add a large furoshiki that ships for $5.00, and the shipping will remain $5.00 no matter how many large and small furoshiki you buy.

Hayashi San(Mr. Hayashi) took over the business from his father, and his company has been making real, quality furoshiki like this for over 70 years now, right here in Kyoto. he also happens to be a friend of one of my students, and so I was able to meet with him and when I told him about my desire to give people outside Japan the chance to try his furoshiki, he was happy to give me his best price. As with many traditional things here, furoshiki are not as commonly used as they once were, and without increased support, both in Japan and abroad, it's inevitable the number of furoshiki companies will keep thinning.

I've been looking for an authentic source for furoshiki for some time now, and was so glad to find Hayashi San. Here's a picture of him, with a selection of furoshiki he brought to me. His company is a member of the Furoshiki Study Group, which is made up of Japan's surviving 40 or so Furoshiki companies. They aim to introduce people to the beauty and practicality of furoshiki. And then he gave me a tying lesson, using the furoshiki wrapped on the bottle of sake he'd just given me. You'll never hear me complain about a lack of perks!

I was also fascinated to learn a bit about the rich history of furoshiki, which is quite long and colorful. As a student of Japanese language, I was surprised to realize that 'furo' is from the word for bath. I'd never thought to connect the two! And 'shiki' is a thing that is spread on the ground. It seems that In the Edo Period, from the 17th to 19th century, furoshiki were used to wrap the clean clothes in, carried the just worn clothes home, and in between, were spread on the bath house floor to stand on while changing.

You'll be nothing but thrilled with this beautiful piece of art from Hayashi San. The only thing cheap about it is the price, made possible by my lucky introduction to the head of the company and his hope that furoshiki will win over new fans everywhere.

Thanks for looking!
