COTTON TAPE FUROSHIKI

Furoshiki (風呂敷) is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Furoshiki was first used in the middle of the Nara period, in traditional Japanese baths (Onsen). To prevent a mix up of the bathers’ clothes, the removed clothing was tied up in Furoshiki. Later the system of folding spread and was used by traders to protect their goods or gifts.

The dye method originates from Japan and is known as Shibori. The pattern is the product of folding, binding and applying of pressure to the fabric before processing, by means of wooden blocks, ropes and yarns.

Pattern dying on this bandana is done as a loose square fold, with minimal application off pressure to allow for a hight pigment seepage through the sample.
