Grace of Waste: Furoshiki / Japanese Wrapping Cloth

We’ve brought the Japanese tradition of wrapping gifts in a reusable cloth to Germany and added a decisive new twist: our Furoshiki is made from Ocean Plastic. This not only avoids new waste, but also recycles existing waste. And because the cloth is always passed on, it spreads a meaningful idea – gift by gift. On closer inspection, the pattern on the cloth illustrates the location of the floating islands of garbage in the oceans. So the Furoshiki not only makes a small contribution to the regeneration of our planet, it also inspires a moment of reflection.
