Until around 30 years ago, most Japanese people used this oversized square fabric to carry their belongings or items, instead of normal suitcases, handbags and plastic bags commonly used at present. However, recently the usage of ‘furoshiki’ is revived due to its re-usability as a move to conserve the environment and to conserve one of the many beautiful cultures in Japan.
