Transform the art of gift-giving with reusable gift wrap, made from rescued fabrics. This eco-friendly gift wrap (furoshiki) by Next Chance is proudly made in Quebec, Canada, with fabric remnants given a new lease on life.
Next Chance‘s philosophy is based on sustainable development, specifically the idea of a circular economy. Their source materials are new fabrics, rescued from the landfill. Wrapping a gift in a furoshiki means giving a gift to the earth, too.
Furoshiki refers to both a traditional Japanese cloth and the method of wrapping gifts. This is a beautiful and eco-friendly alternative to single-use wrapping paper, as it doesn’t need to be thrown away after it’s been used.
Once your recipient has opened their gift, they can use the furoshiki to wrap a gift of their own and in this way, it can be used over and over again.
How to Use:
No more searching for scissors and tape in the junk drawer. These fabric wraps are reusable and adjustable: they adapt to fit whatever you need to wrap.

Next Chance was founded in February 2020 by two entrepreneurs, Gabrielle & Maude, who always wanted to make a difference in terms of the environment. When they realised how polluting gift wrapping made of metallised and plasticised paper was, they decided to offer Quebec gift wrappings made of rescued fabric. They were inspired by the Japanese folding technique called furoshiki and worked on a concept that kept the “gift unwrapping” magic alive. They apply the concept of circular economy by rescuing fabrics that would otherwise have ended up in waste.
