Dark Blue Furoshiki with Japanese Character

390.00

A beautifully dyed furoshiki, made of cotton panels mended several times with sashiko stitching. We were not able to read the slightly withered character and don't know much about the origins of this piece, other than that it comes from Aomori in northern Japan. The cloth is around 100 years old and was used as a furoshiki. These are types of traditionally used wrapping cloths to transport valuable clothes, gifts, or other goods. This furoshiki displays an unusual sign of an ancient family.
