fabric gift wrap

When is a scarf not just a scarf? When you adopt the Japanese art of gift wrapping techniques, you can turn a square scarf into the ultimate fabric gift wrap!

Squares of fabric are called Furoshiki in Japan, where these versatile ideas originated. 


Furoshiki wraps are squares of fabric depicting meaningful motifs that reflect nature and messages of goodwill. Traditionally in Japanese culture, the wrapping of the present is equally as important as the gift within it when using fabric.

For many years there has been a demand for fully recyclable wrapping papers. A lot of gift wrap is not suitable for green recycling as it may consist of a glossy or glittery finish. Fabric on the other hand is not something to just throw away. 

By choosing a beautiful scarf or printed fabric square, you can create the ultimate gift. A gift that is both the wrapping and the content. That’s a double treat!

When you’re out and about shopping, use your scarf to create a handy bag.

Simply fold the fabric into a triangle. Tie a knot on each of the 2 long ends. Turn it inside out and tie a knot with the 2 remaining corners to create the handle. Give it a go!

Printing Scarves


The processes involved in digital textile printing causes the original fabric to shrink. If you are printing scarves, the size of the finished product will be important to you. For example, if you have square artwork, you will be expecting your finished scarf to be square!

To get the printed fabric closer to the size you need, all fabric intended for scarves must go through an extra step to reshape it. Please allow extra time on your deadlines to allow for this process. 

Let us introduce you to the …


The stenter is an enormous piece of machinery that has many uses, including coating our fabrics and reshaping scarf orders.

After travelling through a solution to soften the fabric, it then passes over a flat bed, gripped on the selvedge edges to pull it back into shape. 

It’s a long and precise process that needs to be carefully monitored.

Shrinkage Disclaimer

If you have selected to use our hemming service, we will check the stentered fabric for you before we begin to finish your scarves. If you are not using our service, it’s up to you to check the size BEFORE you cut out the individual scarves from the fabric length. We cannot re-size after your scarves have been cut out.
