Eco-friendly goodies from myfuroshiki!

Next stop on the Coriandr Express is the wonderful myfuroshiki. This has to be one of my favourite shops, and Michiko is one of my favourite sellers. I met her a couple of months ago when we both had stalls at Keighley Arts Market, and she is a lovely person who has a genuine passion for what she does. myfuroshiki is a joint venture between Mich and her sister Olivia, and is inspired by the Japanese tradition of using fabric to wrap gifts, make bags and create decorative wall hangings. This is a fantastic eco-conscious concept as the wraps can be used time & again, and for numerous different purposes - how many uses can you think of? You can check out for more ideas.

One of my favourite items is this set of 10 mini fabric gift wraps, all of which have been handprinted and come with 10 myfuroshiki card gift tags. Also included is a handy instruction sheet with illustrations for wrapping techniques!

You can also make a custom request for special occasion furoshiki favours to suit your theme - what a brilliant idea for an eco-friendly wedding!


  1. Love those furoshiki. Going to get some more at the next Arts Market
