關口三左エ門商店, No date of publication. (circa 1930). Stock ID #163409

Sixteen beautiful coloured designs for furosiki with accompanying pages showing eight different font styles. 25.8 cm x 13 cm. Original green card boards worn with a little loss and creasing, one illustration torn with a little loss, light vertical crease but overall very good.

The furoshiki or wrapping cloths listed in this delightful catalogue contain the names of restaurants, kimono stores, banks and a rice shop. It appears likely this was a sales catalogue for a company which specialised in making furoshiki for businesses to use for advertising.

Over the years furoshiki turned into paper and plastic bags, but recently, they have been attracting attention again due to environmental concerns. They offer the great advantage of a size that can be readily changed and are very portable.
