Sustainable Furoshiki wrapping

Using textiles as wrapping paper is nothing new - in Japan, it's a traditional, centuries-old art form known as furoshiki.

Zusetsu is the go-to brand which specialises in the art of furoshiki, with wrapping textiles from Kyoto, which, once upon a time, held the emperor's treasures when they were placed in a storehouse. Furoshiki are reusable, and many have reversible patterns and symbolic meanings, so there is versatility in how you wrap. The textiles can also become bags themselves - you just need to know how to fold and tie them effectively (think of this technique as a bit like origami, for fabrics). Zusetsu host London workshops to teach individuals the art of Furoshiki wrapping - watch this space for more info on upcoming classes in the new year.
