One of the Japanese items that I’m a fan of are the thin cloths – furoshiki and tenugui – that you can use for wrapping things (such as lunch bento boxes or gifts), as a hand towel or as wall decoration. Designs range from traditional Japanese patterns and images to more abstract, modern or playful variations. I cannot really recall the origin of the cloth in the above picture but I decided to get rid of it when I noticed that it had a hole as well as stains all over it. There are still enough Japanese cloths in the house, as I bought quite a few tenugui to decorate our walls with when we moved into our house initially. Here is a little selection of some of those.
