What is old is new again!

By wrapping in cotton, you are following in the footsteps of the Japanese and their ancient art of Furoshiki.  For generations the Japanese have used the ritual of wrapping their gifts in fabric.  They also reuse the Furoshiki to carry their shopping and wrap their lunch (the fabric is laid out as a placemat when eating) as well as a giftwrap.  although the Foroshiki lost some of its popularity, in recent times the Japanese people have embraced the Furoshiki as a show of responsibility in thriftiness and a means of reducing pollution.

You can do this too if you choose to wrap your gifts in cotton. We have a whole new slant on wrapping in cotton through wrapping in a traditional western manner and we also sell fabric that can be used in the traditional Japanese way to create truly stunning, elegant gifts.
