Bamboo to You

Remember how, in this post, I said that scarf reminded me of bamboo? Well ... I've figured it out.

Yokan, a Japanese sweet, was traditionally wrapped in bamboo bark. In some cases, modern packaging has replicated the bamboo bark pattern.

Now, compare and contrast:

Behold! Bamboo Bark, babies!


  1. Though I'm not familar with Yokan, and I can't embiggen these pics for a good look, I could see a bamboo connection from the first scarf photo.

    (Oh, and I fall into the yay camp.)

  2. reminds me more about yokan itself. i. want. it. now. or martini:-p
