AB 76-48

This furoshiki, or wrapping cloth, is made of a dark green-dyed fabric. It consists of three long panels joined at two seams. The design features the "three friends of winter" (bamboo, plum, and pine trees) and a large mon (family crest) at a bottom corner, here a four-petal flower encased in a thick circular border. The plum blossom is filled in with a blue color; the rest of the image is created by the negative space of undyed fabric. This is a fairly large piece and was either used to wrap a large amount of items or perhaps to allow room for a specific tying technique.
