This year, give yourself a break from fighting with sellotape and paper that won’t cut or fold evenly. Instead, make an eco friendly, beautiful, simple and quick Furoshiki wrap. A beautiful wrap can be a gift in itself.

Eco gift wrapping is finally starting to get some respect, no least with the Japanese furoshiki knot wrap.

This year, give yourself a break from fighting with sellotape and paper that won’t cut or fold evenly. Instead, make an eco-friendly, beautiful, simple and quick Furoshiki wrap.

A beautiful wrap can be a gift in itself. And with this soothing craft, it might just take some of the stress out of present wrapping.

I’m going to show you how to make a knot wrap – Japanese / Scandi style. Furoshiki wrapping is a Japanese way to gift using only fabric. The cloth I use is the Danish designed organic cotton “The Cloth” from the Chalk & Moss shop, which beautifully fuses Japanese and Scandinavian minimalist design and style. The Organic Company commissioned various talented artists to come up with the designs.

Pick a large square piece of fabric (or the Furoshiki wrap cloth from Chalk & Moss) and check these instructions for two different wrapping techniques.

The organic cotton Furoshiki wrap “The Cloth” has come down to half price, now only £9.95. It comes in five artist designed patterns.
