About dyeing technique
“Hiki-Zome” or brush dyeing is a technique consisting in using a brush directly on textiles without soaking them in a dyeing solution. Extensive experience and knowledge about dyeing are required. Also, silk light and glossy texture makes it the suitable fabric for this technique, creating sophisticated blurred patterns.
The four classic plants （orchid, chrysanthemum, plum, and bamboo）are depicted on the furoshiki.
This four plants, orchid, bamboo, chrysanthemum, and plum have been associated with the qualities of a "gentlemen", that it to say artists.
Orchids are recognized for their elegant scent, bamboo for its ability of endure even cold season, plums for being the first flowers blooming early spring, and chrysanthemums for blooming vividly in the cold late autumn.
You can change the pattern on the top according to your mood and sense of fashion.
Wrapping cloths, known as furoshiki, are part of Japanese tradition and culture.
They are a fabulous, zero waste way of wrapping anything from products and wine bottles to 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.
Suitable as a gift for loved ones, such as family celebrations or wedding gifts, and also as a birthday present.
While Japanese culture is not alone in using fabric wrapping, furoshiki has a distinctive style reflecting Japanese interest in ceremony, beauty, multi-functionality and thoughtfulness in detail as an approach to everyday life.
Cloth wrapping has been used for over 1200 years in Japan and the word furoshiki, meaning 'bath spread', it 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.
Over time, Japanese developed a multitude of uses and patterns that are both elegant and functional. One furoshiki cloth can be used as:
a bag for shopping
a handbag decoration
a picnic hamper
a household decor
a scarf, belt or bandana
as a way to wrap clothes when travelling
