The Cohare Water-repellent Furoshiki in Hummingbird Green:


The inspiration for this design comes from a lovely old Japanese story:

When a forest fire occurred, the hummingbird carried each drop of water.

The other animals which were escaping from the forest said, “what is the point?”
The hummingbird replied to them, 'I’m doing the only thing I can do.'

Many people are moved by importance of this small power, and it's said that the 'drop' which was made first was the trigger for everything which followed.

The ivy in the design represents a strong life force and when combined with a hummingbird it becomes a lucky design.


This Aquadrop furoshiki is a convenient, outdoor and rainy day furoshiki which has a water repellent surface. It can be folded and tied in the same way as uncoated furoshiki, to make a handy bag for shopping or for gym kit.


It will also cover a shopping basket so that it is attractive and water-repellent! Take a look at our Furoshiki Tutorials here for lots of ideas and information!


Our 104cm square water-repellent furoshiki makes a lovely table covering. It's also useful for baking and craft sessions!


It's a brilliant bag to take to a picnic or outdoor concert - not only do you have a great bag to take a spare top, but you can collapse the bag and have somewhere dry to sit! 


Every order receives a furoshiki booklet that offers clear diagrams to show how to make several styles of furoshiki gift-wrapping and furoshiki bags.

If the water repellent effect weakens, simply apply an iron (medium temperature) and the water repellent effect will return.
