Furoshiki was traditionally used in Japanese baths to prevent the mixing up of bathers’ clothes. Today, Furoshiki is used to wrap anything you need to transport from A to B – they also have seen a renewed interest as ‘gift wrap’ in recent times, as environmental factors have come into play.  Santiago Sunbird’s whimsical floral illustrations look right at home printed onto silky cloth and will enhance even the most basic of gifts.  Bree and Sarah will take you through a sequence of wrapping and folding techniques that will be sure to pack a punch next time you need to transport that bottle of wine to your mother in law’s dinner party.  Oh and unlike the Onsen, you can keep your clothes on – we’d rather you keep your privates under wraps.

You can choose your design here and let us know your preference in "Special Requirements" at checkout
