Furoshiki Fabric Gift Wrap
R90.00 – R145.00
Did you know that most wrapping paper is not recyclable? How about trying Furoshiki this holiday season instead. Furoshiki is the art of Japanese fabric wrapping and we love it! This beautiful Japanese tradition could help the world eliminate some of the waste that has long accompanied Christmas. Wrapping your gifts in fabric is not only eco-friendly, but also gorgeous and elegant. Impress your loved ones with gorgeously wrapped gifts where the fabric also becomes part of the gift! Furoshiki is super easy to master and you’ll have so much fun adding your special touches.
These beautiful Furoshiki gift wraps are made in Cape Town. The ‘Standard’ sets of 2 and single ‘Linen’ gift wraps are made from perfectly useful textiles that were landfill bound. The ‘Standard’ sets are usually cotton, but due to offcuts availability, fabric variations will occur. The best part of using these repurposed gift wraps is that your friend can reuse them again. If not being used to wrap another gift, your friend can reuse her fabric wraps by tying it into her hair for a fresh feminine touch, wrap it around her neck and use as a fashionable scarf or tie it around her bag strap to add a pop of colour and a bit of sass. Please note the fabric used for the “Luxury” Furoshiki is called “Supersoft” which is a polyester blend. These are not made of offcuts.
‘Standard’ and ‘Luxury’ sold in sets of two. The individual ‘Linen’ gift wraps have a tag for hanging attached and double up as a tea towel. Choose from the following colours:
Luxury Pink Floral Set of 2

How to use
With Furoshiki, you wrap your gifts just as you would with wrapping paper, only without the tape and the waste. Grab some decorative elements to match, fold the fabric and tie it artfully. Instructions are included, but we also love this video by the amazing Marie Kondo. This ring-shaped knot tutorial is also stunning for lovingly wrapping a gift.
We love using fresh lavender, a Eucalyptus twig, our seeded tags or even one of our Palo Santo sticks to transform the art of your gift-giving. You can also make your own instant Furoshiki carry-bag. Take a look at this tutorial here.
