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.
We're excited to have added to our collection of screenprinted textiles with a small range of beautiful tenugui wall-hangings, from Yokohama, which is just south of Tokyo!
Why not choose a gift that is elegant and unique!

Artist Harriet Chard @harrietchard_art painted a beautiful composition of delicate early-summer flowers set in a furoshiki-wrapped vase. The furoshiki is our 48cm Japanese Apricot Blue/Beige, and it's thrilling to see it captured so perfectly!
Our lovely customer Rachel made this beautiful tapestry and gift-wrapped it in our extra large Isa Monyo Knot furoshiki. What a wonderfully special present!
We love hearing from all of you, and seeing your wonderful furoshiki wraps, so do keep in touch!
