Description
 
Perfect gift wrap for that young girl's birthday present! Bright, feminine colors with a motif of maiko (apprentice geisha) with their long obi and elaborate up-do hairstyle, temari (woven balls), and a floral border.

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

Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths, used even today when presenting gifts in Japan. Furoshiki also make lovely decor accent textiles - hung on the wall or draped over a tabletop - or bandana-style scarves!

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.
