Ukiyo-e Furoshiki - Fine Wind, Clear Morning (Red Fuji)
Furoshiki are Japanese multi-purpose square wrapping cloths that come in a variety of sizes and patterns. The beautiful ukiyo-e patterned furoshiki are made of sturdy cotton shantung that has a textured surface and are a perfect size to wrap your lunch box.
This picture is titled Fine Wind, Clear Morning, often referred simply as Red Fuji. It is a woodblock print by Katsushika Hokusai and is part of his Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series. Red Fuji can be observed only in the early morning of clear days during the summer and fall. This pattern captures that rare moment when Mount Fuji looks red by the reflection of the morning sunlight.
What is great about furoshiki is that they are so simple yet so versatile. Add furoshiki to your collection of eco bags and explore their endlessly possible uses.
