The knot design of this furoshiki is a symbol of being connected due to the stripes overlapping and being in perpetual continuation. In contrast to the calming and serene purple and green version, this blue and orange reversible furoshiki creates a very bright feel. It's perfect to brighten up your day at lunch time, or to convey cheerful feelings when wrapping a gift.

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.
