The term ukiyo-e (浮世絵) translates as "picture of the floating world".

In Japan, Wrapping cloths have been a tradition (known as furoshiki).
They are a fabulous, zero waste way of wrapping anything from produce 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 a different way.
While Japanese culture is not alone in using fabric wrapping, furoshiki has a distinctive style reflecting Japanese interest in ceremony, beauty, multi-functional objects and thoughtful detail in approach to everyday living.
Cloth wrapping has been used for over 1200 years in Japan and the word furoshiki came about during 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, Japanese developed a multitude of uses and patterns that are both elegant and functional. One furoshiki cloth can be used for :
wrapping a gift
a bag for shopping
decorating a handbag
a picnic hamper
a scarf, belt or bandana
wrapping clothes when travelling
