【The story of the Knot pattern】
The original pattern is made by the Isa Pattern Institute, which works to preserve katae dye and its patterns that have existed in Japan since ancient. The lines are created by carving through a persimmon tannin stencil with a sword, which gives them a unique handmade quality that is not uniform in thickness.
The design also has the meaning of connecting people.
The chrysanthemum, the motif of this design, means immortality and longevity in Japan and is famous as a noble flower that has been respected since ancient times.
Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth or fabric traditionally used to wrap and or to transport items for over a thousand years in Japan. The first furoshiki was used during the Nara period (AD 710 to 794). While the name has changed, the form has been handed down without much change. It is a traditional Japanese cultural item created by the thoughtful wisdom of the Japanese people.
Furoshiki usage declined in the post-war period, in large part due to the proliferation of paper and plastic bags available to shoppers. In recent years, however, it has seen a renewed interest as environmental protection has become a greater concern.
