Vintage, 27 inches (70 cm), Japanese furoshiki wrapping cloth - reversible golden ocher and green

$8.50

This listing is for one furoshiki cloth. Furoshiki are traditionally used to carry clothing, food or gifts. They can be folded in many ways to create ornate wrappings for gifts. They also make beautiful centerpieces for quilts or home decor items such as cushion covers.

This furoshiki is a vintage, used item. There are some flaws on this furoshiki. Please read the description carefully to learn about these flaws. This item is being offered at a reduced cost due to these flaws.

This polyester furoshiki is reversible. The front side features a printed, creme colored abstract wave design over a green hued background. The reverse side features a printed, orange colored asanoha (hemp leaf) design over a gold-ocher hued background.

Please see the last two photos for the best representation of the colors. Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison.

This furoshiki is made of polyester and has a woven damask-like design that gives it a wonderful "bumpy" texture and slight sheen. The threads that were used to create the woven design on the golden-ocher hued side have a wonderful sheen. This sheen makes the golden-ocher color shimmer in the light. The furoshiki fabric is of a medium weight and has a slightly flowing drape.

This cloth is about 27 inches x 27.5 inches ( 68.6 cm x 70 cm) in size. Two sides of the cloth are hemmed. The other two sides are selvage edges and will not fray.

**There a few small spots or burnished areas on this furoshiki. Some examples of these areas can be seen in the 8th photo. There are about 4 of the smaller spots (examples are seen in upper 2 photos) and 3 of the larger spots (example seen in lower photo). All these spots are located near the corner of the furoshiki where it was once tied. **

I believe that the pictures show a good representation of the fabric colors however, please remember that colors may look different on your monitor. This is a vintage item so there may be small blemishes or marks in addition to those noted in the description. This item has been stored for many years so there may be a slight storage smell although I do not notice one.
