Furoshiki v.s. Wrapping Paper

In recent years, with the alarming amount of plastic wastes and fast-disappearing forests, the use of furoshiki as an eco-friendly alternative is gaining attention.

Instead of wrapping a gift with disposable paper, why not try wrapping in furoshiki?

It looks elegant, is reusable and reduces waste.

Traditionally, furoshiki is handed back to the gift-giver. If you feel a little uncomfortable asking it back, I’d suggest including a little note that asks furoshiki to be reused or returned.

Here’s an example:

This gift is wrapped with care in “Furoshiki”, a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth to reduce paper waste. Please keep and reuse as a shopping bag, pass it on as a gift wrap, or return back to the sender so it can be used again.
