This festive season at Roland Mouret we’re celebrating the art of giving and therefore would like to give you a little something extra this year!
Using some of our favourite Mouret fabrics from previous collections we’re offering a limited-edition Furoshiki-style fabric wrapping for the first 100 gift orders. Not only a unique and more sustainable way to wrap gifts but it can also become the gift that keeps on giving by recycling the materials in the future.
Furoshiki is traditional Japanese wrapping cloth that has a 1200 year history and dates back as early as the Nara Period when it was used for keeping the valuables of the Emperors.
The number of the furoshiki users declined in the post-war period because of the popularity of the plastic shopping bags. However recently it has been reevaluated as awareness about environmental protection rises. Being compact when folded and good for reuse, furoshiki is the eco-friendly alternative and is believed to contribute to reducing household waste. The ideal gift wrapping for us this season as we work to becoming a more sustainable brand.
Shop for the perfect gifts for your nearest and dearest here and stay tuned for our furoshiki tutorials so you can learn how to reuse these fabrics yourself!
