  • What's Furoshiki

    Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth or fabric traditionally used to wrap and or to transport items for over a thousand years in Japan. The first furoshiki were used during the Nara period (AD 710 to 794). While the name has changed, the form has been handed down without much change. It is a traditional Japanese cultural item created by  the thoughtful wisdom of the Japanese people.  

    Furoshiki usage declined in the post-war period, in large part due  to the proliferation of paper and plastic bags available to shoppers. In recent years, however, it has seen a renewed  interest as environmental protection has become a greater concern. 

    Nowadays, Furoshiki is used in many different ways. You can wrap and tie each corner to suit the size and shape of the contents within. In this way, it is very useful to carry items. It also has become increasingly popular for gift wrapping.  

    It is light, compact, washable and reusable. It can be used in so many ways!!
    We can’t wait to share all our ideas of how to use
     them with you. Furoshiki will become a MUST have in your  sustainable living lifestyle.
