Lion dance and Thief Green Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth 19in
This Japanese Furoshiki was designed by origami artist duo "Cochae". It features faces of a lion's mask and a thief. The green arabesque cloth is strongly related to both, and is the pattern worn during the lion dance, and is known as the pattern for the cloth the thief puts his stolen goods in. The humor is familiar to Japanese people, and it is full of playfulness.
The size of 48 cm(18.9in) is suitable for wrapping small items or bento boxes. The moderate unevenness of the surface gives it more texture than a flat fabric and is easier to wrap. The more you use this cotton material, the softer and gentler the texture becomes.
With this unique Japanese motifs and bright design, it is recommended for everyday use as well as for gift-giving.
