At the time Furoshiki was already used for wrapping treasure in shosoin(正倉院) and was called "Tsutsumi"(包)(To wrap) and used to wrap precious things. In Heihan Period (794 to 1185), people used it mainly to wrap garments. From Nanboku cho period (1336 to 1392) , people started to use Furoshiki to go to public bath and use it so that they recognized their clothes without mistake after enjoying bath. This is why Furoshiki is named so.
