Meet Lisa

On a trip to Kauai, Hawaii in 2011, Lisa Rumberger saw a furoshiki-style bag hanging on a shelf in a quilt store.
In an instant, she was amazed by the creativity, functionality, and sustainability of the bag and the fabric. With the new nationwide concern over the impacts of plastic bags on our environment and a Hawaii ban on plastic and paper bags, Lisa understood the value of a reusable and fashionable bag.

Although the woman who owned the quilt store couldn’t sell Lisa the bag, she offered to do her one better: teach her to tie her very own Furoshiki bag. With this skill and much practice, Lisa’s Gone Shopping was born, to spread awareness for the Furoshiki bag and increase sustainable practices.
