The silk Furoshiki (wrapping cloth) was made for a particular family, indicated by the crest found on one corner of the textile. On the other corner, there is a fluid design with movement well contrasted with the crest.
This Furoshiki was likely made to wrap valuable items or gifts to be delivered to somebody important. As with all Furoshiki, works like these were not made to be admired as works of art. Yet it possesses the same level of thought, care, and beauty.
