Ordinarily I am not a fan of leaving extra rolls of toilet paper out for all to see, let alone giving out TP as gifts. But the two-ply, fragrance free, Fruits Toilet Paper from Japan is so beautifully packaged you won’t want to hide it in the cupboard. Nor will you be embarrassed showing up to a party with them.
Fruits Toilet Paper from Japan
Did you know that many companies and stores throughout Japan give a roll of toilet paper to customers as a novelty gift to show their appreciation? I didn’t. But the folks at Latona Marketing did and with their beautifully packaged Fruit Toilet Paper they are wowing customers and package design competitions worldwide.
There are now 4 designs to choose from: Kiwi, Strawberry, Watermelon, and Orange – which can be purchased online.
The toilet paper is made to order, contains no fragrance and is made from high-quality pulp 100%. You can purchase a gift set of four for 1,500 Yen ($14 USD), packaged in a bag featuring the traditional pattern of Japan called “SHIPPO-TSUNAGI”
Or you can purchase them by the case (48 rolls) for 13,800 yen (approx $128 USD) and can select clear plastic bags for individual packages (twist-ties not included), turning them into cool gifts.
The design challenge was the conversion of spherical fruit into a cylinder shape. They achieved this through the effective use of the fruit cross-sections and as a result, they have received a Platinum award for Pentawards 2015 and Golden A’ Design Award 2016.
