5 Ways to Wrap Presents with Furoshiki


We travel all over the world for inspiration, and we always find such unique beauty each culture. Long ago in Japan, we fell in love with furoshiki (“foo-roe-sh-kee”)—a traditional wrapping cloth used to carry gifts or clothing. Modern Furoshiki can be made from a variety of fabrics and colors. After years of our furoshiki only available in Tea’s signature brown, we’re so excited to announce that you will now find the cloth in three new colors — navy, light blue and red! We love furoshiki as an elegant, versatile and earth-friendly way to wrap or transport a gift. It can even be re-used as a scarf, a kerchief, a headband, a cape!

Have you ever thought about wrapping gifts in something other than paper? During the winter holidays, 4 million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags are thrown away. Wrap your gifts the eco-friendly way with our signature Furoshiki Gift Wrap, inspired by the artful Japanese tradition of wrapping gifts in beautiful swaths of cloth. Your giftee can re-use and re-purpose the cloth gift wrap any time of year. Read on to learn how to wrap your presents 5 different ways (in all shapes in sizes!).
