When I came across the Furoshiki Wrap Company on Instagram, I knew I had to work with them. Their mission aligns perfectly with my personal values and ethics which are at the core of my natural soap business. Jane, the Founder at Furoshiki Wrap Company, was kind enough to write this guest blog post all about her furoshiki wrapping cloths, so read on to learn more about the art of Japanese fabric gift wrapping. Over to you Jane!
Furoshiki - beautiful, reusable gift wrap, perfect for eco-conscious consumers
More often than not, it can be hard for us to give our loved ones their gifts in person so it's great when a business offers gift wrapping so we can send our gift directly to the lucky recipient, saving us time and money. Bloom In Soap has found a perfect solution that fits with their sustainable ethos - furoshiki, reusable fabric gift wrap.
Why use furoshiki fabric gift wrap?
Unfortunately, there is a lot of waste produced by gift wrap. In fact, 108 million rolls of wrapping paper and around 40 million rolls of sticky tape end up in landfills in the UK each year. So when you are shopping for an eco-conscious gift, it only makes sense to consider the eco-credentials of the wrapping too.
What does Furoshiki mean?
Furoshiki is a Japanese concept of using fabric to wrap gifts or tie them into bags. The furoshiki wrapping is infinitely reusable in a multitude of ways. Furoshiki Wrap Company is based in North Devon and is on a mission to reduce the waste from gifting in the UK. Their furoshiki wrapping is made in the UK.
