This furoshiki features a striking daruma motif. nanakorobi yaoki(If you fall down seven times, get up eight) is an old saying that reflects a focus on effort rather than results. Those who don't give up, who persevere despite obstacles are sometimes respected even more than those who lead the pack.
Daruma exemplify this spirit, as they're weighted at the bottom and return to their upright position when they're pushed.
Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths. This one is about 50cm x 50cm(19.69" x 19.69") and is a high quality 100% cotton.
The rich colors and texture and size have made these smaller furoshiki quite popular for home decor and in sewing projects! They can also be used as a furoshiki to wrap small objects-please take care to measure first, allowing ample room for tying.
