Cotton Fabric Gift Wrap Furoshiki
100% cotton reusable fabric gift wrap
This beautiful fabric gift wrap is a waste-free wrapping option that has you doing your bit for the planet and bringing joy in no time.
A gift in itself, it can be used over and over again for so many things (not just wrapping).
You do not need any scissors or tape with a fabric wrap - just a few knots - super quick (less than 10 seconds) and simple to create an elegant, unusual finishing touch to your gift.
The delicate and classy silver spots fabric is by John Louden - established in Manchester in 1926. There is a subtle snowflake pattern on the fabric.
The other fabrics are all OEKO-TEX certified cotton.
The wraps are 'handmade' on sewing machines, not mass produced in a factory. Each wrap comes in a recycled cardboard packet
Choose from 2 sizes: 50cm x 50cm or 70cm x 70cm.
There are also wine bottle & Prosecco/Champagne Bags in our fabric wrap range (including in this design).
How to use:
There are many ways to wrap objects in fabric. This is one of the simplest.
Place your cloth diagonally (a corner pointing towards you) with your object in the middle. Make sure the sides of your gift are NOT parallel to the sides of the cloth (like you’d have them with wrapping paper), but remain diagonal.
Fold the top corner down towards you and tuck it underneath the object.
Fold the bottom corner up and over your gift.
Take the 2 remaining left and right corners and tie them into a knot - twice.
Et voilà – tuck, pull & straighten your bow to make it even more marvellous. For bonus points you can decorate it with a leaf or flower (but you don’t have to).
The diagram on the back of the packaging illustrates this and a bottle wrapping method.
There are lots of alternatives including corner knots and the four petal knot which you can find by searching the internet or email us for more information.
Furoshiki is the ancient Japanese art of wrapping objects in cloth in an aesthetically pleasing way, for transport, or decor or many practical uses. Wraps are often passed own through generations.
