The reusable fabric gift wrap
Dāman is an amalgamation of India’s rich textile heritage with the Japanese art of Furoshiki, creating beautiful and eco-friendly fabric gift wraps. The word ‘Dāman’ is the Sanskrit word for gift or the act of giving and Furoshiki is the Japanese technique of wrapping gifts, books and other objects with fabric.
Fabric gift wraps are an eco-friendly alternative to paper and plastic wraps, being not only reusable but also biodegradable. Traditionally the Furoshiki wrap was returned back to giver, but you can make it a part of your gift. Dāman wraps can be reused as a gift wrap or can be used creatively as a napkin, a bandana or even as a scarf!
The fabrics chosen for Dāman wraps have been carefully selected to showcase Indian regional traditional dying and printing techniques ranging from Bagru, Ajrakh to Kalamkari.
