Traditional yet new pop design furoshiki wrapping cloth
Kakefuda offers a wide variety of furoshiki wrapping cloth in front of Chion-in Temple. The shop started as a factory which made custom-order silk furoshiki by hand bearing a family’s crest. In 2005, they started to produce casual and pop design original furoshiki with cotton, and it became a big hit. As well as traditional auspicious Japanese patterns, new designs are constantly added to their collections. Today, 58 different furoshiki with 25 patterns are displayed (5,200 yen each). They are useful for not only wrapping an object but following a practical folding and tying technique one can make different styles, like a handbag and shoulder bag style. Furoshiki is once again becoming popular mainly among foreign tourists as a traditional, yet new Japanese item today.
