Fukusas are the Japanese answer to gift wrapping paper. In the past, when an elaborate gift was presented, rather than wrap it in paper, it was covered with a fukusa. Frequently measuring as much as 30 inches square, the front of the fukusa most often portrayed iconic Japanese symbols, cranes, pines and elderly couples representing longevity and marital fidelity. Tassels hung from the corners and the reverse side most often bore the crest of the gifting family. Many of the older examples were hand painted. These are all in excellent condition except where noted.
