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!

FABRICS AND PRINTS

Our Dāman Furoshiki wraps are made from 100 % cotton fabric which has been hand block or screen printed using natural and vegetable dyes. The fabrics and prints chosen for Dāman wraps have been carefully selected to showcase Indian regional traditional dyeing and printing techniques ranging from Bagru, Ajrakh, Daboo to Kalamkari.

THE DESIGN

Our Dāman Furoshiki wraps are available in single prints as well as in our signature reversible design which has a unique diagonal origami pattern which can be folded in different ways to create different patterns. Each Dāman Wrap is accompanied by an easy to follow wrapping instruction diagram. A sizing guide is also included to make it easy to understand which Dāman Wrap is suitable for which size of the package.

DĀMAN FUROSHIKI SIZES

Dāman wraps are available in the following different sizes –

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.
