Furoshiki (風呂敷) are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth traditionally used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Furoshiki began to be 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.
Currently Furoshiki are made of different fabrics, including silk, cotton, rayon and nylon. And though this art remains popular in Japan, its use has declined because of the modern high demand for plastic bags. In recent years the Japanese Environment Ministry has organized several campaigns to promote the use of Furoshiki again, to ensure environment protection in Japan and worldwide.
