DĀMAN Furoshiki Fabric Gift Wraps and Bags
DĀMAN FUROSHIKI – 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 a 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 the giver, but you can make it a part of your gift. Dāman furoshiki wraps can be reused as a gift wrap or can be used creatively as a napkin, a tea towel, a bandana or even as a scarf!

Dāman wraps are available in the following different sizes –
|Size (Inches/ Centimeters)||Suitable for objects|

The above furoshiki sizing guide is a volumetric guide. For example, if the stated suitability of the small size wrap is for objects upto 6 x 6 x 3 inches it translates into a volume of approximately 108 cu. inches. This size wrap can be therefore used for objects measuring 9 x 6 x 2 inches or 7 x 5 x 3 inches.
Japanese Furoshiki uses many different wrapping styles. The simplest is the ‘Otsukai Tustsumi’, instructions for which are included when you purchase a wrap. Additional wrapping styles can be found in the illustration below.
