Furoshiki Design
The most representative design offuroshiki should be “karakusa (arabesque) pattern”. It is a pattern that has been popular in Japan for a long time, but it is said that its origin is in ancient Greece. It was eventually used in Mesopotamia and Egypt, and it is thought that it was transmitted to Japan around the Nara period (AD 710 to 794) through the Silk Road. The pattern that multiple vines of the arabesque (medicago) intertwined and woven together expresses the vital force of the vines, which has meanings such as descendant prosperity. It may also be used for body parts of shishimai that appear in festivals throughout Japan.
Furoshiki & Environmental Impact
Furoshiki & Environmental Impact
Recently furoshiki has been drawing attention as eco goods. Here is the explanation how the favorable impacts can be made by using furoshiki. The plastic shopping bags we use at shopping in retail stores like supermarkets are made of materials such as polyolefin, and there is concern about the negative impact on the environment. Ethylene, which is a raw material for polyolefin, is made by refining petroleum. Annually, 60 million to 100 million barrels of oil is spent on plastic bag manufacturing in the world. Therefore, you can save oil that is the raw material by not using plastic bags.
