Furoshiki gift wrap

For a greener alternative to gift wrap why not try using furoshiki – a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth.

There’s no need for sticky tape or paper - all you need is a square of lightweight fabric such as a silk scarf that is large enough to wrap around your gift several times. Or why not try recycling an old item of clothing...

The Japanese Ministry of Culture has come up with a handy step-by-step guide to wrapping any sized gift (see above). Also check out this video guide from Recycle Now. Enjoy!
