This Furoshiki gift wrapping guide will explain everything you need to know about this eco-friendly alternative to wrapping your holiday gifts and cutting down your environmental impact this holiday season.
Furoshiki is an ancient Japanese method of using a single piece of fabric to wrap gifts nicely. No need for scotch, scissors, or other tools to wrap your gifts. With Furoshiki, a single piece of printed cloth is simply folded around the gift, allowing you to adapt it to all sorts of wrapping purposes, whether that is a box, a bottle, or a gift with a unique shape. Furoshiki is more than an eco-friendlier alternative to gift wrapping.
Furoshiki is a creative gift wrap alternative that is reusable, allowing you to offer your loved ones two gifts in one. With every gift, Furoshiki makes the art of gift-giving more personal and special to both the giver and the recipient. The giver has the joy of wrapping the present in an eco-friendly cloth wrap, while the recipient has the pleasure of untying it and using it again.
Using Furoshiki wrap also saves you the hunt through all your drawers looking for the scotch tape. You also don’t need any specific tools to wrap your gift. Plus, you will be done wrapping your gift within seconds!
