About the artist
Itō Jakuchū (伊藤 若冲, 2 March 1716 – 27 October 1800) was a Japanese painter of the mid-Edo period when Japan had closed its borders to the outside world. Many of his paintings concern traditionally Japanese subjects, particularly animals such as chickens and other birds. Many of his traditional works display a great degree of experimentation with perspective and other modern stylistic elements.
In Japan, wrapping cloth are part of the tradition (known as furoshiki).
They are a fabulous, zero waste way of wrapping anything from products, wine bottles, clothes & gifts.
Furoshiki embraces the philosophy of eco-friendly living by challenging us on how many items we really need. This beautiful and ingenious art allows one object to have many uses simply by folding and tying the cloth in different ways.
While Japanese culture is not alone in using fabric wrapping, furoshiki has a distinctive style reflecting Japanese interest in ceremony, beauty, multi-functionality and thoughtfullness for details as an approach to everyday life.
Cloth wrapping has been used for over 1200 years in Japan and the word furoshiki dates back to the Edo period (1603-1868) when the cloths were commonly used in bath houses to wrap clothes and as a bath mat. The word furoshiki means 'bath spread'.
Over time, the Japanese developed a multitude of uses and patterns that are both elegant and functional. One furoshiki cloth can be used as
a gift wrapping
a bag for shopping
a handbag decoration
a picnic hamper
a household decor
a scarf, belt or bandana
a way of wrapping clothes when travelling
