Today, I would like to introduce you a Furoshiki store in KYOTO, “KAKEFUDAYA”.
Do you know what FUROSHIKI is?
According to Wikipedia…
Furoshiki (風呂敷, furoshiki) are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Although possibly dating back as far as the Nara period, the name, meaning “bath spread”, derives from the Edo period practice of using them to bundle clothes while at the sentō (public baths;public furo). Before becoming associated with public baths, furoshiki were known as hirazutsumi (平包), or flat folded bundle. Eventually, the furoshiki’s usage extended to serve as a means for merchants to transport their wares or to protect and decorate a gift.
Furoshiki are light, changeable, eco and beautiful cloth!
“KAKEFUDAYA” is a store specifically for selling Furoshiki.
