What is Furoshiki?
A Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese reusable gift wrapping cloth made of fabric. This is meant to be a waste reducing alternative to wrapping paper.
While some wrapping papers are recyclable, wrapping paper cannot be recycled if it contains sparkles, glitter, sequins, foil, artificial texture, sticky gift labels, or plastic. Additionally, most ribbons and tapes used with wrapping gifts cannot be recycled either.
Even when all the stars align, and everything used to wrap the gift is recyclable, the resources that go into the recycling process and making new single-use wrapping paper can be saved by opting instead for our reusable, handcrafted and upcycled Furoshiki style wrapping fabrics.
Upcycled and Secondhand Fabric
The fabric we use for our Furoshiki wrapping fabric is all 100% upcycled and/or secondhand. The majority of the fabric we use for our Furoshiki started out their life cycle as Polyester tablecloths with a linen rental company. When the tablecloths become damaged, and unable to be rented, rather than going to landfill, we give them another chance to be useful for years to come by making them into these beautiful Furoshiki gift wrapping fabric.
Some gifts have awkward shapes that make using wrapping paper tricky (and messy). With the flexibility and durability of fabric wraps, there are many different ways to wrap beautiful earth friendly gifts!
A Gift That Keeps Giving
When you choose reusable Furoshiki fabric wraps, you get the built in "pay it forward" bonus. The recipient of your gift can then use it for future gift giving and that recipient can use it again, etc.
