Furoshiki are traditional Japanese fabric wraps that make an elegant and lasting alternative to wrapping paper. Their origin can be traced to the Nara period and to onsen hot springs. Here, bathers wrapped their belongings to keep them safe, a practice which soon spread to merchants and traders to protect their goods.
