Kokeshi Doll Furoshiki Gift Wrap / Scarf
Furoshiki is the traditional Japanese wrapping cloth. With it's deep history rooted in bundling up your clothes when visiting a sento (japanese public baths), Furoshiki and the over-a-thousand-year-old art of wrapping is fast having a come back to become the most beautifully efficient and oldest way of eco gift wrapping!
In a modern world where we are constantly trying to find new ways to use less plastic and up our recycling footprint, wrapping gifts in high quality, REUSABLE fabric seems like a no brainer!
Why waste wrapping paper (which is often covered in a thin layer of non-recyclable plastic!) when you can wrap a gift nicely with just a few quick knots. It looks great and you can either give the recipient the furoshiki as a bonus gift or ask for it back to be used again! It can even be used to make your own makeshift bags or you could wear it as a scarf or (my personal favourite) a head scarf!
When I was traveling in Japan in the summer, it was incredible to see so many beautifully designed fabrics everywhere for this purpose exactly! I was inspired to start creating my own and I hope you guys agree with my passion.
The scarfs come in 2 different sizes:
52x52cm size 1
72x72cm size 2
Size 1 is great for wrapping small gifts; like a pair of Noodle Hoops in their gift box, a neatly wrapped Always Ramen Tee or a Tora Denim Clutch! (Also great for bento boxes, boxed candles or for head scarf wearing!)
Size 2 is great for wrapping medium gifts; like a neatly folded Kitsune Sukajan Bomber Jacket or Dango Kana Shirt! (Also great for a wine bottle, box of chocolates or book... also scarf wearing of course)
My Furoshiki scarfs can be ordered separately (for your own try at Japanese gift wrapping!) or alternatively I can gift wrap it for you!
