Furoshiki is an elegant, versatile and earth-friendly way to wrap or transport a gift. It can up-cycled; re-used as a scarf, a kerchief, a headband, or impromptu rain cape!
During the winter holidays, 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags are thrown away, and throughout the year millions more tonnage of disposable wrapping and bags are sent to landfills or end up in the oceans and seas of our planet.
