The Furoshiki Handbook’s author, Etsuko Yamada, comes from a long-line of furoshiki makers in Kyoto. The book draws on a long Japanese tradition of wrapping items in cloth. This tradition is said to have first originated in the Nara period. Wrapping cloths were then used to wrap up and store important treasures of the imperial household. It may be that the reason that these customs have persisted through all these years is because they contain qualities that appeal to Japanese people.

Furoshiki have a place not only in traditional Japanese-style living, but also in modern, Western-style living as well. Recently, it has been very popular among international tourists as a souvenir. The ties in furoshiki represent the ties between people. Using furoshiki to wrap things is a way of wrapping up and presenting our feelings. This makes furoshiki a fantastic communication tool.
