The lily design is based on a book cover designed by Yumeji Takehisa. The bird symbol on the bottom right can be displayed as part of the knot when using as gift wrapping. In Japan, lilies traditionally represent neatness and purity. 

The fabric is 100% organic cotton with "AQUA DROP" finish - a water-repellent coating, which protects against moisture and is easy to dry. This coating diminishes with washing, and be restored by ironing the cloth on the back.


Yumeji TAKEHISA (1884-1934)

Yumeji Takehisa was a Japanese poet and painter and he was well known for his Nihonga paintings. He also designed unique and dynamic patterns for products like furoshiki and, apart from his influence on manga artists, he is seen as a pioneer of Japanese graphic design.


Yamada sen-i was established in 1937 as a manufacturer of furoshiki. The company's furoshiki brand is “MUSUBI” which is derived from from “born(生す/musu)” and “beauty(美/bi)” in Japanese. “MUSUBI” also means “a knot” and “to tie”.
