Hokusai Fuji Chirimen Yuzen Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth 27in
This masterpiece by Katsushika Hokusai expresses the grandeur and mystery of Mt. Fuji, and is also commonly known as Aka(Red) Fuji.
Aka(Red) Fuji is a phenomenon that occurs when Mt. Fuji is tinted by the morning sun from late summer to early autumn, and is considered to be a good omen because it is rarely seen.
This Furoshiki is made by a Japanese traditional weaving technique called "Chirimen", which gives it a unique texture with an uneven surface.
The beautiful contrast of the blue sky and red Fuji makes this Furoshiki perfect for wrapping important gifts or using as a bag for daily use.
