A Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth, which people used to carry their clothes and toiletries, but later came to be used to carry (or wrap) just about anything. Today furoshiki lost its popularity as a practical everyday item, but remains a cultural traditional and aesthetic value and is still widely use to wrap presents.
You can use it like this or simply as a decoration item (wall hanging, wine holder, table cloth) or a fashion accessory.
