This design is the original knot design conceived by Kunio Isa (one of the most influential traditional stencil printing artists in Japan). The design also looks like overlapping stripes, and is considered auspicious due to the symbolism of being connected. Due to the meaning, this furoshiki can be used to wrap gifts as thanks for receiving a gift in the first place. The pattern combined with the reddish purple and bright green colours brings out a traditional Japanese feel, so perfect not only to wrap your bento box, but also present a gift with an oriental touch.

More about the pattern

Isa monyo (Isa pattern) is a pattern dyeing technique handed down since ancient times in Japan. The technique results in innovative. intricate and delicate patterns and is achieved by carving out the patterns on specially prepared paper using a knife or sword. This template paper is then placed over cloth or Japanese paper, and a series of gluing, dyeing and washing steps are taken that finally results in a dyed pattern on the target material. The sharp lines created by carving combined with the soft outline from the glue results in a work that expresses both sharpness and warmth. This furoshiki represents such works from that era in Japan.
