Each wrap is in the shape of a square and perfect for wrapping without wasting paper or using additional tape.



You can tie your wrap in countless different ways, there is no right and wrong way.

There are many different furoshiki functions such as wrapping gifts, a bag for shopping, a scarf, belt, bandana, or hanky, protecting items when travelling, a lunch bag.



HOW TO WRAP

1: Lay out your furoshiki diagonally with the gift centered as shown in the first image below

2: Fold the top corner over the gift and tuck underneath

3: Fold the bottom corner over the gift and tuck under in the opposite direction

4: Gather and tie the 2 side ends together

5: Fluff out the petals and straighten the knots to your satisfaction



Through the sale of each scarf, all proceeds go towards our 21/22 local foundation projects. 



BIODIVERSITY

The Forests for Life - Heartland Project aims to restore 1 hectare of forest land at Heartland Organic Farm through alien invasive plant management, natural regeneration management, and active planting of 1500 indigenous tree seedlings. By improving forest land use, this project will assist in increasing several ecosystem services for the local community including climate change adaptation, improved soil stability, increased species biodiversity, and decreased fire risk.

Additionally, this project will support several community tree nurseries in the area thereby providing an income to those who run the nurseries and supporting the propagation of indigenous trees in the area.

Thanks to this project, the Foundation will participate in the preservation of 15 varieties and the planting of 1 500 trees.

EYECARE AWARENESS

After seeing the amazing impact of the first VisionBox implementation of a custom fitted container placed in Mbekweni that offers low cost optometry services, we will be funding towards the implementation of a second clinic in a new location. The running costs of a VisionBox concept are very low, but the initial setup cost is high due to the optometry equipment needed to offer these services. Once open, the VisionBox can offer eye care in township and become sustainable from day one – providing a self-sustaining business model while supporting the surrounding community.

Thanks to this project, the Foundation will support eye care for 11,500 beneficiaries by 2025.
