This gift is a great example of sustainability for the reusability of the packaging. All chocolates are wrapped in linen furoshiki-style fabric that later can be used as home decor or an accessory (bandana wristband, anyone?)
What is Fruroshiki?
FUROSHIKI is a square-shaped cloth used in Japan to wrap items and carry them. Being made of cloth, FUROSHIKI can be stored easily, are very light and can wrap many different kinds of shapes. For those reasons, FUROSHIKI is convenient for day-to-day needs. They can be used to wrap several small goods together or wrap one bulky item, like a wine bottle or a large sake bottle. In addition to these advantages, FUROSHIKI can just be washed like other cloth when they get dirty. Japanese re-acknowledged that FUROSHIKI is also environmentally friendly, it became even more popular. Our FUROSHIKI is made of linen, yet it is durable and easy to make a knot.
KAMAWANU is specialized in the making of TENUGUI, a hand-dyed rectangular cloth traditionally used in Japan as functional everyday housewares / garments. The TENUGUI is created using the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing technique, which dates back to the Meiji Period more then 100 years ago and is still used by today's craftspeople who value its refined textures and visual qualities. Since its establishment in 1987, KAMAWANU has developed more than 500 different TENUGUI patterns, thus bringing new life to the "CHUSEN" hand-dyeing tradition, including the training of apprentice "CHUSEN" craftspeople.
