Upon receiving The Yoku Glow box, you’ll see that the J-Beauty products come wrapped in a colorful cloth, known as a Furoshiki Cloth. What may seem like a simple, square fabric, it’s functionality and versatility proves otherwise.
Furoshiki translate to “bath (furo) spread (shiki),” and was first used in Japan as a means to protect valuable goods. It symbolizes the art of wrapping something in fabric. Today, you’ll see the Furoshiki Cloth being used to wrap gifts, food, and even bottles!
Why We Love The Furoshiki Cloth?
We love the Furoshiki cloth for several reasons. First of all, it’s Eco-Friendly. Did you know that the amount of trash wrapping paper and shopping bags that end up in the landfill equates to 4 million tons annually? I know, crazy right! With the Furoshiki Cloth, since it’s a fabric, it can be used and reused to wrap your gifts this holiday season (#lowwasteholidaygiftwrapping). Next, the Furoshiki Cloth is versatile. You can use it to wrap presents, fold it into a bag, create a bottle holder, and more! The possibilities are endless. Lastly, Furoshiki Cloths are both stunning and elegant! They come in different shapes, sizes, patterns and colors.
