KAIKO Furoshiki

In recognition of Plastic Free July, I recently shared some stories on Instagram on how you can transform your favourite fabric into reusable gift wrapping. It's a traditional Japanese method of wrapping everything from every day items for ease of transportation to more ornate origami like folds for gifts. It's called Furoshiki and it's wonderful!

I had such great feedback from the stories I posted that I thought I would share a step-by-step process on how you can create your very own Furoshiki using existing fabric that you have at home. It can really make an impact on your use of single-use items like wrapping paper and can almost become another element of your gift.

I've used one of KAIKO's Sunshine napkins to show you how!
