風呂敷/ Wrapper @ cafe ambiente

"cafe ambiente" に行ってきました。"cafe ambiente"は、2周年を迎え記念グッツを頂きました。写真が記念グッツです。風呂敷を選んだセンスに感動しました。伝統文化を大切にし保存するために良い提案だと思います。
P.S. ありがとう!! アッちゃん

I went to "cafe ambiente" in Daikanyama. "cafe ambiente" has two years anniversary and the picture below is the memorial items. They choose the "Furoshiki" which is a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. I think that this is very good idea to keep our own traditional culture.

"風呂敷"とは、

起源は定かではないが正倉院の所蔵物にそれらしきものがある。 古くは衣包(ころもつつみ)、平包(ひらつつみ)と呼ばれていた。それが風呂敷と呼ばれるようになったのは室町時代末期に大名が風呂に入る際に平包を広げその上で脱衣などして服を包んだ、あるいは足ふきにしたなどの説があるが明確ではない。言葉自体の記録としてはた駿府徳川家形見分帳の記載が最初のものとされる。 その後、江戸時代になり銭湯の普及とともに庶民にも普及した。 なお平包の言葉は風呂敷の包み方の一つとして残る。

一枚の布ではあるが様々の形状、大きさのものを包むことができるため広く普及していった。風呂敷自体、様々な大きさのものが作られ強度を上げるため刺子を施すなどもされた。サイズの大きいものは大風呂敷といい布団を包めるようなものもある。

"Furoshiki"

Furoshiki (風呂敷, furoshiki) are a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. Although possibly dating back as far as the Nara period, the name, meaning "bath spread", derives from the Edo period practice of using them to bundle clothes while at the sentō (public baths). Before becoming associated with public baths, furoshiki was known as hiradzutsumi (平包), or flat folded bundle. Eventually, the furoshiki's usage extended to serve as a means for merchants to transport their wares or to protect and decorate a gift.

Modern furoshiki can be made of a variety of cloths, including silk, cotton, rayon, and nylon. Furoshiki are often decorated with traditional designs or by shibori, chirimen. There is no one set size for furoshiki, they can range from hand sized to larger than bed-sheets. The most common sizes are 45cm (17.7 inch) and 68-72cm (26.7-28.3 inch).

Although there are still furoshiki users in Japan, their numbers declined in the post-war period, in large part due to the proliferation of the plastic shopping bag. In recent years, it has seen a renewed interest as environmental protection became a concern. Furoshiki are, however, commonly used to wrap and transport lunch boxes (bento) and often double as a table mat for the lunch.

On March 6, 2006, the Japanese Minister of the Environment, Yuriko Koike, created a furoshiki cloth to promote its use in the modern world.
