This was designed by “Yumeji Takehisa” who was popular as a Japanese painter and designer in early 1900’s. This was originally designed for "Origami Paper" in 1910s. The original design was much smaller, but it has been laid out larger in order to be used as furoshiki. The vertical lines are thought to be in the shape of dandelion flowers. We have designed the stems and dandelion lines to be diagonal so that the flowers are visible when wrapped or made into a simple bag.
The plain weave sheeting fabric is strong and suitable for carrying stuffs with you.

Water-repellent furoshiki - which is called "AQUQ DROP" - has been very popular in Japan as an " eco-friendly bag ", but only polyester products were available. We did not want to use plastic products, so we developed a water-repellent furoshiki made from 100% organic cotton. Thanks to the water-repellent finish, it's unlikely to get dirty so easily and it's easy to dry. It can be used as a blanket or a scarf because it is 100% cotton and has a pleasant touch.
The water-repellent effect and durability of polyester are stronger than organic cotton. As with the polyester, the water-repellent finish can be come back by heating with an iron. *The water-repellent finish diminishes depending on the washing and use frequency.
