Red Shippo Furoshiki Wrapping Cloth 27in
At first glance, the pattern appears to be white dots on a red background, but the red part is subtly decorated with a "Shippo" pattern of interlocking circles.
The "Shippo" is a pattern in which parallel circles of the same size are overlaid one quarter on top of the other, resulting in a continuous combination of a diamond-like shape and a petal-like shape. It signifies peace, happiness, and prosperity of offspring in an endless chain of circles.
It is an eye-catching pattern, and even today it is used in modern package design, graphic design, and as a pattern on the walls and ceilings of commercial facilities. It can be used for a wide range of occasions, both Japanese and Western, and is also suitable for wrapping Western-style items such as champagne and cakes.
The fabric is made of cotton which has a reasonably firm texture and easy to use.
This furoshiki is suitable for any celebrations and will be great to wrap gifts for someone who loves unique items and Japanese motifs.
