Furoshiki is the traditional Japanese cloth method of wrapping.
Don't be scared it is so much easier than traditional wrapping, and no annoying sticky tape, it is an eco-conscious and stylish way to wrap any gift and can be used over and over again, wash them just like you would wash any item of clothing.
And mine are even more environmentally friendly because they are made from old duvets and sheets they may have ended up in landfill, some are purchased from charity shops and some are ones that have been given to me from friends and family, because of this, we donate back and for every furoshiki sold I make a donation to Plastic Free North Devon.
They come in 3 different sizes
Large is approximately 90cm x 90cm perfect for multiple items, larger items.
Medium approximately 50cm x 50cm smaller gifts, books, clothes
Small approximately 35cm x 35cm jewellery, single book, socks!
They are so simple to fold, follow the steps below or I do have saved videos on my instagram.
1.Place your object in the centre of the furoshiki
2.Take two opposite corners of the square and fold them over the top of the object, just like you would with normal wrapping paper, you can wrap them underneath the object or fold the triangle back on itself so that it sits flush.
3.Then take the other two opposite corners and knot them just above the first knot.
4.Add your gift tag and that’s it, I like to pop a little note about reusing the fabric for other presents. Keep the fabric going.
