The Beginner's Guide to the Art of Furoshiki Wrapping

How You Can Incorporate Furoshiki into a Modern Lifestyle

What comes to mind when you hear the word, "Furoshiki?"

  • "A traditional Japanese art."
  • "A piece of cloth used for wrapping things?"
  • "An eco-friendly product."
  • "I think I’ve heard of it somewhere before..."
  • "I have no clue..."

In this course, we will cover everything from “What is a Furoshiki?” to its history, to tips on how to incorporate them into our daily lives.

Even if you have no prior experience or knowledge of Furoshiki, all my lessons are very simple and easy to learn. Please do not hesitate to participate!

Furoshiki is a piece of wisdom that has been passed down from our ancestors. It was born in a time when people did not have access to the modern conveniences we have today and needed a practical way to carry and store precious items. Its functionality is a form of art with an important message that may speak true in today’s age more than ever.

What makes Furoshiki so wonderful is its reusability. The cloth can be gifted to a loved one along with the item it is used to wrap. Not only will it bring joy to the recipient, but that person can then reuse it themselves and gift it to someone else. A wrapping tool that can be used over and over again without being thrown away… Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

I designed this course to share the wonderful nature of Furoshiki-wrapping with as many people as possible.

Furoshiki is not only used for gift-wrapping. It can be used in various lifestyle scenes such as bags, hair decorations, fashion accessories, carrying lunch boxes and yoga mats, etc. You can be as creative as you want.

Hi, I'm Shiho! Thank you so much for taking my online gift wrapping courses!

I have been a professional gift wrapping artist for almost 20 years, providing my services to individuals and corporations, conducting workshops and demos, and creating instructional videos.

I believe that the art of gift wrapping can transform gift-giving opportunities into priceless memories.

A gift by itself is a material object, a thing. The act of gift wrapping helps to turn that object into an experience, a memorable moment. Material things can make someone happy but it's the overall experience that tends to create something more meaningful and longer lasting.

I've witnessed how the art of gift wrapping changed people's gift-giving events to amazing experiences throughout my years as a gift wrapping artist. My previous clients and students often came back to tell me the great gift-giving experiences they had by giving beautifully wrapped gifts.

I hope that my courses will help you learn the necessary methods and techniques as well as the philosophy of the art of gift wrapping, so you could have wonderful gift-giving memories for the rest of your life.

Happy Wrapping!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I purchase Furoshiki?
You can purchase Furoshiki of various designs and sizes at our online shop!
What size Furoshiki should I prepare?
The size of Furoshiki you'll need will depend on what you'll be wrapping. In each lesson, I'll show you what size you'll need, so please watch carefully. If you're going to be wrapping many kinds of gifts, please check out Module 1: Lesson 1-6 Furoshiki Sizes for Your Gift for more information. I recommend keeping that lesson bookmarked for future use.
Do I give the Furoshiki to the recipient as part of the gift, or do I keep and reuse the Furoshiki?
There are no set rules. If your gift is already nicely wrapped, you can use the Furoshiki simply as a way to carry the gift to the recipient. You would then unravel the Furoshiki, gift the item inside, then take the Furoshiki home with you. For example, you might do this when bringing snacks or wine bottles to a party. If you decide that you want to share your passion for Furoshiki with those around you, you can include it as part of the gift – it is totally up to you!
Can I wash the Furoshiki at home?
Furoshiki are made of various materials. Washing methods will vary based on the materials, so please refer to Module 1: Lesson 1-8 How to Wash and Take Care of Your Furoshiki for care instructions.
How can I use Furoshiki to live an eco-friendlier lifestyle?
A single Furoshiki has endless possibilities. If you are looking to reduce your use of plastic, there are many ways to turn the cloth into a fashionable tote bag or picnic sheet. Of course, when it comes to gift-wrapping, you eliminate the need of paper, tape, and other supplies that will end up being thrown away. My hope is for each of you to learn the techniques through my courses, then find creative ways of your own to incorporate into your daily lives.
I have a scarf/bandana/handkerchief at home. Can I use these for the online lessons?
