Many of Japan’s ancient practices, such as calligraphy, tea ceremonies, and various forms of martial arts, arose from historical necessity. 

Originally used to secure valuables throughout the Nara era, Furoshiki has retained a role for similar purposes, as wrapping fabrics used for purses, bento boxes, and gift wrapping.

Our Nakama online store offers a wide range of traditional Furoshiki colours, designs, and materials available for anyone looking to try their hand at yet another captivating Japanese custom still treasured today.
