Sashiko Packaging Philosophy and Gift Wrapping

Sashiko’s core concept is Japanese philosophy of “Mottainai – too good to waste.” Since I am in the culture of Sashiko deeply, some people may misunderstand me that I am an extreme ecologist. Probably, interested in our Sashiko Packaging Philosophy ?

Well. Yes. I care about the environment as a normal person do. I try to recycle as much as I can. However, it doesn’t mean that I banned using all of the plastic bags and necessary packaging. In fact, I believe that the nice & neat packaging is a form of art.

At the same time, I respect and follow the core of Sashiko, which is “re-purpose.” Therefore, some of the packing materials may be from the previous order I received from other online store. It is my mission to “repurpose” things by adding a human touch. 

Caring as Sashiko Packaging Philosophy

We call Sashiko “Stitches with Caring”. The same concept applies to the Sashiko Packaging Philosophy.

I always make a package with brown shipping paper with proper bubbling if necessary. Then, covered with the plastic bag and then send the item in a durable plastic shipping bag. 

As I mentioned above, I care about the environment. At the same time, I also care how the customer feels when she/he receive it. The items shouldn’t be wet or damaged. It should be in the best condition available.

Gift Wrapping for Sashiko order

I learned that there is a need for the gift wrapping service.

The basic, yet nice and tidy packaging like the photo attached, is for free. You may use ribbons to make the official Novelty Gifts.

I can use the fancier wrapping paper with colorful ribbon with the extra fee. We do not use the box because of the shipping fee we set. If you are interested, please contact Atsushi first so I can give you the estimate. 

Also, please let us know if you would like to have the package slip in the items wrapping or outside of wrapping yet inside of shipping package.  

One thought to “Sashiko Packaging Philosophy and Gift Wrapping”

  1. I have to say, when I first received a package from you I was in something of a frenetic rush to open it up. But when I saw how well it was put together, I couldn’t help but slow down. It was very beautiful! Thank you.
