"FISH: Kingyo Goldfish" Furoshiki

This charming motif features lots of colorful goldfish, or kingyo as they're known in Japanese. The vivid colors of the goldfish along with the calming, cooling blues and greens make it a lovely addition to your summertime space. This is especially true here in Kyoto, as summers here are known for their humidity, as Kyoto's in a basin. A refreshing, cooling scene like this is most welcome!

Just under 20" square (50cm) and 100% cotton. New, not vintage.

Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths, used even today when presenting gifts! And yes, the recipient keeps the furoshiki.

These days - with recycling and "repurposed" accessories trending everywhere, "green" buyers can quickly convert a furoshiki into a handy tote to use at the grocery, at school or anywhere you need to carry things neatly. No handle needed! Check out the samples in the photos or visit the blog in the caption for more wrapping ideas. Great for home decor, table covers, or quilting projects, too.

Shipping cost is included.


*NOTE: This is a NEW (not vintage) furoshiki and will be shipped to you directly from Kyoto via economy (SAL) airmail, which takes 2-3 weeks in most cases. If you order furoshiki along with other NY-based Kyoto Kimono items (kimono, haori, obi, fabric and pretty much everything else), please keep in mind that your furoshiki will be shipped separately.

By the way, furoshiki comes from furo, which means bath in Japanese and shiki, which is something that is spread on the ground. Long ago, furoshiki were used to carry clothes to and from the public bath and were spread on the bath house floor to stand on while changing.
