Extra Large 120cm Araiso Koi Furoshiki


Kyoto's Karakusaya create beautiful, high quality furoshiki.


I was thrilled to be shown their warehouse on my first visit. I passed by the shelf piled with this stunning two-sided woven koi furoshiki, and couldn't get them out of my mind!


We are delighted to now be able to offer them to you in-store.


They are our largest furoshiki - 120cm square - and they are perfect for a sofa or armchair throw.


I have a personal furoshiki in this size from this series, and it has always been commented on when I make a furoshiki Leaf Bag with it.


I love the quality of the fabric, and how the design is so skillfully woven in the contrasting colourway on each side.


It is large enough to be used as a table cloth, or made into a fantastic furoshiki backpack!


In Japan, these extra large furoshiki are widely used for storing and covering bedding, and they are popular as gifts.

The Araiso Koi furoshiki is part of the Kurashi no Nuno series. It is a product woven on a jacquard machine from dyed yarn. The woven width is about 120 cm, and because it is woven, it is durable and can withstand long-term use. 

Araiso in Japanese means a windswept and wave-beaten shore.


Since ancient times, it has been a popular design for furoshiki, showing auspicious carp on the waves.
