The Art of Eco Friendly Wrapping

Eco-friendly and sustainable products are on everyone's radar these days and since the gift-giving season is upon us, we thought it was a great time to talk about the modern day "furoshiki". The furoshiki is a piece of printed cloth that was once used in Japan to transport goods. Today it is an eco-friendly and stylish way to wrap and present a gift, with no need to feel guilty about wasting expensive paper. This is one thing that you can feel good about regifting!

You can stock up on inexpensive fabric at your local fabric store and learn how to wrap your gifts in style, or find them online. We fell in love with Jennie Wren's modern Furochic with vibrant designs and color combinations. We especially love the greens and browns in the Forest design found here. Each Furochic comes with wrapping instructions and a matching gift tag for $12.95.
