Our wraps are currently made from either faux-silk polyester, or 100% cotton.
Our polyester wraps are reversible, with a matt, raw silk-like slub on one side and a shiny satin effect on the reverse. This gives you the option of changing the look of your wrapped gift each time you use it!
The cotton wraps have a design on one side only, although some have a slightly contrasting colour on the reverse meaning you are able to make your bow stand out in a striking way should you twist the fabric to show the reverse once tied.
*Please note there may be a slight variation in the exact colours of the wraps due to the batch of fabric used to make them. We have tried to photograph them to show them as accurately as possible.
Our Furoshiki wraps come in three different sizes. When choosing the size you’d like, remember you’ll need plenty of material left over to tie a knot with – the gift should be approximately 1/3rd the width of the wrap across the diagonal length .
Our wraps are handmade in the UK, there may be slight variation in wrap sizes as we try to avoid wasting any material when cutting the fabric! The sizes shown below are the minimum size the wrap will be.
Small wraps: vary in size between 38 x 38cm in the cotton wraps, to 45cm x 45cm in the Faux-silk polyester wraps- perfect for small gifts, small notebooks, small box of chocolates
Medium wraps: minimum 70cm x 70cm – Perfect for A4 sized books, medium shoe-box sized gifts, bottles of wine
Large wraps: 1m x 1m – Perfect for two-bottle wraps, larger gifts
All purchases come with a wrapping instruction leaflet. There are pictures and video demonstrations under the “Instruction” section of this website. Like every new skill, wrapping with Furoshiki takes a little bit of practice until you get the hang of it. If you are really struggling, do get in touch and we’ll see what we can do to help!
