This furoshiki features a traditional motif of koi(carp) fighting their way upstream in a fierce current. For centuries, the carp has symbolized strength, courage, determination and fighting spirit in Japan and this design is an especially powerful one. Carp motifs are especially popular with families that have young boys.
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 this distinctive Asian fabric on your wall. You can find this handy hanger here.
