The word cochae comes from a folk song and means" first timers welcome!" This Cochae Kabuki Actor Furoshiki is a premium furoshiki that features the hero representing Edo Kabuki and won the Good Design Award in 2008.

This original art is known as an Origami Funny Face Card; when wrapped it shows a different " face"depending on how it is folded. The bold colors and stylized rendition against the white make-up of the kabuki actor also brings joy when unwrapped.

The two faces on this Cochae are used to elicit surprise and laughter with each square representing the Japanese colorful world of theater!

*A Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. Wrapping your bento box in a furoshiki dresses up your lunch hour with refinement as well as adding a sense of aesthetics and culture to your everyday life. Aside from this,the furoshiki can be also be used as as an impromptu bag, for wrapping things for storage, and as a unique and  eco-friendly and reusable gift wrapping. Furoshiki have been making a comeback in Japan in recent years, as a beautiful and "green" way of gift-giving. Here in the West, we have learned to adapt the tradition as we  move towards eco -consciousness and an eco-sustainable lifestyle. 
How to wrap a bento box in a furoshiki: Place the bento box in the middle of the furoshiki. If the box is square in shape, place it on the diagonal, so the sides are facing the corners of the cloth. Bring two opposite corners of the cloth over the box and tie securely. Then, bring the other two corners over the cloth, and tie again. You can also find instructions online for wrapping different objects in creative ways, such as how to wrap a wine bottle to make a handle for bringing wine to parties.
