Why offer a furoshiki?

  • Introduce local cloth to the guests.
  • Minimize the use of plastic bags (as a reminder, in France, we use more than 10 billions of plastic bags, knowing that it takes between 100 and 400 years for them to decompose).

Chose a nice squared piece of a local cloth (it can also be an old sheet, or table cloth,…). Join the Hopineo’s Handbook  so your guests can make by themselves their own Furoshiki. And there it is !
