The beautiful, reusable way to wrap gifts.
Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth used to wrap gifts or everyday objects for transportation. Furoshiki originated in the Nara period in Japan, and was originally used by the wealthy to transport their clothes to the public baths —or furo.
For centuries and to this day, furoshiki are used to bundle and transport lunches, as a fashion accessory, and as a sustainable way to wrap gifts. We want to introduce this age-old solution to the modern problem of disposable paper gift wrapping.
The United States produces 4.6 million pounds of wrapping paper every year, and half of that—approximately 2.3 million pounds—winds up in landfills. If every American family wrapped just 3 presents in reused materials, it would save enough paper to cover 45,000 football fields.
Gift a Keiko Furoshiki on its own or wrap another present with one for a 2-in-1 surprise. Once unwrapped, a furoshiki can be used in a variety of every day ways: as table linens, a fashion accessory, or frame it and hang it on a wall. It's the gift that keeps on giving.
Our furoshiki are lovingly designed by Japanese-American artist Keiko Kira. The playful prints are inspired by her childhood growing up in Japan and invoke the seasonal colors in nature, of cultural celebrations, and the beauty and craftsmanship of everyday items.
