When did these crafts start to craft?：1400 years ago / 600AD / Yamato period in Japan
It is said that feudal lords wrapped their clothes while bathing, and after bathing, they laid the wrapped cloth down and changed their clothes. The name "furoshiki" (it means "lay in the bath" in Japanese) was derived from the fact that laying the cloth was done in the bath. Today, it is a substitute that is being re-evaluated from the perspective that it can be used over and over again, like an eco-bag.
