How to Wrap a Gift with Reusable Fabric Gift Wrap

Tired of watching wrapping paper being ripped from your presents and thrown in the trash, knowing you're responsible for adding to the landfill? Now you can wrap your presents in gorgeous planet-friendly reusable fabric gift wrap that you know will be used again and again... and yet again.

Our Canadian-designed 100% cotton reusable gift wrap comes in four bright and colourful designs that are dye printed and soak through to the back side of the fabric. These 27" x 27" earth-friendly gift wrapping sheets are lightweight enough to twist and tie knots easily, yet opague enough to conceal the gift inside. No scissors or tape required.

The design of our reusable gift wrapping is inspired by furoshiki, a type of traditional Japanese wrapping cloth frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. While it originated in the Edo period as a means of carrying clothes to the public baths, furoshiki are currently most commonly used to wrap and transport lunch boxes (bento) and often double as a table mat for the lunch.
There are many different ways to wrap a gift with reusable fabric gift wrap - and you can wrap everything from bottles to flowers and any number of different boxes in between. View the five videos below for some how-to instruction and ideas, then enjoy experimenting and figuring out some of your own ways!
