The Small Isa Monyo Reversible Furoshiki: The winter-flowering apricot herald’s spring with its lovely fragrance. It is loved in Kyoto as a happy flower.
For centuries plum blossom has been written about in Japanese literature. Murasaki Shikibu writes in her 11th-century novel The Tale of Genji:
The red plum in the garden was so lovely in colour and scent that even the warblers seemed unable to pass by without a song.
This Isa Monyo contemporary design has been processed using a traditional, reversible technique. This means that each side of the textile is the same pattern but a different, vibrant colour.
This 48cm square furoshiki is perfect for elegantly wrapping a thoughtful gift. The simple method of folding and tying contrasts the two colour ways exquisitely.
