This furoshiki cloth features a lovely field of irises and is based on a famous folding screen that's among the treasures housed at the Nezu Museum in Tokyo. The original screen there done by the artist Ogata Korin and is from the 18th century.
The original masterpiece there is only put out for public viewing for a short period from the end of April to the first part of May each year. It is rather long and is in fact two pieces displayed together. This square fabric incorporates the two sections into a upper and lower half, instead of showing them as one long piece.
Please note that this is a print on cotton, not an actual 'byoubu' foldng screen. It has a deep red border. I have this motif with a 'karashi' mustard yellow border listed separately, please check that listing if you prefer a yellow border.
It's about 50cm x 50cm(19.69" x 19.69") and like my other furoshiki, is a high quality 100% cotton. It can of course be used as a furoshiki cloth to wrap a small gift, though its petite size makes it best in this regard for smaller items, allowing for enough room to tie it. The rich colors and texture and size make it ideal for home decor or quilting projects, too!
I also sell a furoshiki hanger separately that works very well with this size furoshiki and makes it easy to display on your wall. You can find this handy hanger here.
