Did you know that most wrapping paper isn't recyclable?
In Australia alone we use 8,000 tons of wrapping paper every year.
Wrapping cloth also known as furoshiki has been a tradition in Japan since around 710 BC.
Furoshiki is a square piece of cloth or fabric used for gift wrapping, transporting items (you can turn these into carry on bags!), fashion accessories (scarf, belt, bandanna and many more), and home decor (napkin, tea towel, hand towel, table cloth, food wraps, lunches/bento wraps & great for picnics).
Wrapping cloth is quicker, zero waste, sustainable, Eco-friendly & versatile way of wrapping anything & it can be used over & over & over again.
