Furoshiki is a square-shaped Japanese traditional wrapping cloth that is eco-friendly and mostly used for wrapping gift, carrying goods or just as a décoration.

Furoshiki originated in Japan around 710 B.C. during the Nara period. During this time, cloth that an object was wrapped in was referred to as tsutsumi, meaning “package” or “present.”

It was primarily used to wrap important goods and treasures found in Japanese temples. Although they date back centuries, these square-shaped decorative fabrics that offer a sustainable alternative to paper gift wrapping.

Keep in mind that plastic-coated gift bags and boxes will most likely end up in the landfill.        

4.6 Million pounds of wrapping paper get’s used each

year by Americans alone, worth seven Billion Dollars. Half of that ends up in

Landfills. That’s 2.3 Million pounds of wrapping paper in the trash.

Why is Japanese gift wrapping important?

In Japanese culture, gift wrapping can be as important as the gift, where the gift is viewed as a form of communication between the giver and the receiver. ... In short, the wrapping is considered as part of the gift itself and should reflect both the gift being given and the emotions behind the gift. Furoshiki started gaining popularity outside of Japan in the past few years.

What is rPET?

rPet is the acronym used for recycled polyethylenetetraphyte (PET). PET

is the world’s fourth most common plastic resin and is used in everything from

food packaging to clothing.


When you see the word “rPET” it simply means that the PET in the product

you’re looking at, should come from a recycled PET source.  In short, rPET takes plastic that has already

been created – usually plastic bottles, and chops these bottles into tiny

flakes. These flakes are then melted to separate the core PET ingredient inside

of the bottle.  This PET can then be used

to make any thong from our rPET fabric to another plastic bottle.


Research shows that energy used to create rPET fabric is about 85% less

when compared to virgin polyester.  This

results in a round 65% fewer emissions and 90% less water required to



·       The digital printing industry is worth $2billion globally which equates to 870 million sq.

·      This accounts for less than 2% of textile printed industry.

·        Digital printing is showing a 20% year on year growth.

·        60 000 informal traders are collecting PET bottles in SA.

·      This equates to 90 000 tons of PET waste collected.

·        Recycling PET has an 85% energy saving a supposed to producing virgin plastic.

·        Every kg of fabric removes 37 bottles off the street.

·      1ton of recycled PET = 1.5 tons reduced in carbon emissions.

* To protect our natural resources and wildlife. 

* It saves money.

* It reduces pollution. 

* It save energy. 

* It reduce landfill waste. 

* And it creates jobs.

Promoting sustainability and supporting local Community's.

When starting our range we knew there would be allot of sowing involved.  We found a lovely lady that sells her hand crafted sawing work out-side a take-away shop close to our home.  We thought wat an amazing opportunity to get her involved in our Furoshiki venture.

We Support "The Litterboom Project"


Initiated in 2017, The Litterboom Project - TLP - was the pilot phase of our solution to alleviating the increase in marine plastic pollution, by targeting the river systems, instead of dealing with it only at the oceans.

90% of marine plastic pollution comes from river systems and we, at the TLP team, have therefore devoted ourselves to this preventative solution.
