Inspired by the Japanese art of Furoshiki, a type of traditional cloth used to wrap gifts and goods, this functional practice makes for beautifully unexpected favors, re-imagined in the realm of weddings.
Elegant and deceptively simple, these beautifully knotted parcels enhance any tablescape, offering texture and organic drape. Draw upon a superfine cloth such a silk or muslin to create a ‘full bloom’ style knot at the top, or twist and tuck ends under themselves for a minimalist, but textural approach.
Housing any manner of goods inside, the malleability of fine fabric compared to traditional paper, artfully encases any shaped favor. Consider the parcels an extension of theme, drawing upon colours, textures or prints sensitive to your color palette and surrounds. Or use these favors to create a bold focal statement at each place setting, such as indigo dyed shibori patterns or an ombre of different, naturally dyed solid tints.
