Welcome to Zusetsu

Welcome to Zusetsu, your online store for quality furoshiki from Kyoto, Japan. Here you will find lots of help and ideas for creating your own beautiful gift-wrapping and furoshiki bags.

Traditional, quality furoshiki from Kyoto for an environmentally conscious lifestyle

Contemporary furoshiki knot-wraps evolved from the textiles that carefully wrapped the treasures of the Imperial family, just outside Kyoto. Now you can create these wonderful styles, and be a part of an on-trend movement that is choosing sustainability and reusability over disposable paper and plastics.

To complement our growing range of furoshiki, we have more pretty gifts from the elegant city of Kyoto that are created using skills passed down through generations: beautiful brocade purses that use the weaving skills of Nishijin-ori, and deep-dyed washi paper gifts inspired by kimono patterns.

Why not choose a gift that is elegant and unique!

Meet the Zusetsu team! You can discover more about our journey on our About page!
