Picture of Ōsaka on Nanban Sarasa
大阪城 - Ōsaka-jō - Ōsaka Castle
Nanban means "Southern Barbarians" applied in old Japanese to things, technics etc. introduced by Portuguise, Spanish, Indians or Persians.
Sarasa is the name of the pattern dyed silk or cotton fabrics.
These modern sarasa patterns are made by designers. Seemingly the design of your furoshiki
(traditional Japanese wrapping cloth - if it is larger than 45 cm) or handkerchief (if it is smaller) based on a difficult to define woodblock print.
