Christmas tutorial: Furoshiki packaging

The end -of -year celebrations are fast approaching and to prepare, I suggest you discover a fabric gift packaging technique straight from Japan, Furoshiki. Original, quick to make and perfect to use your fabric coupons and falls, the Furoshiki technique will allow you to make trendy and eco-responsible packaging!Furoshiki is a fabric coupon that is available in several sizes, the small one that measures 50x50cm, the 75x75cm means and the largest of 100x100cm that traditional Japanese use every day to transport or pack everyday objects. For our gift packaging, the small and the average size will suit perfectly.

Two options are possible to enhance your Furoshiki in a printed cotton for the holidays, with a simple or sewn/back -sewn hem with two different prints for an even more fantasy rendering. You can find all our printed cottons for the holiday season in the category Christmas prints To carry out your gift packaging and many other projects!
