Squeeze into carry on luggage with a haramaki from NukuNuku

I just managed to get away on a last minute trip to Lanzarote which I absolutely LOVED (I have a huge crush on the artist Cesar Manrique now - if you haven't heard of him as I hadn't then check him out) . It was the first time we have run away and left the kids, we did it last minute and got bargainous flights and accommodation and did the flights with carry on only. Warm in the Canary Islands, cold on our return and we didn't want to pack heavy warm clothing….so our haramakis were our space saving and cosy saviours!!! 

Whether you're planning a winter getaway or just visiting family and friends, packing efficiently is key to making your trip enjoyable. One versatile and often overlooked item that should be a staple in every traveler's suitcase is the haramaki. This simple yet effective accessory not only keeps you warm but also offers numerous benefits for packing light during the holiday season. In this blog post, we'll explore why a haramaki is a fantastic holiday item for those looking to travel light without sacrificing comfort or style.

1. Compact and Lightweight:

One of the biggest advantages of the haramaki is its compact and lightweight design. Unlike bulky sweaters or jackets, a haramaki takes up minimal space in your luggage. Rolled up, it can easily fit into a corner of your bag or even a small pouch, leaving more room for souvenirs or essentials. Whether you're flying, road-tripping, or taking public transportation, every inch of space in your suitcase is precious, and a haramaki ensures you won't waste it.

2. Versatile Layering:

Holiday destinations can have unpredictable weather, and it's essential to be prepared for temperature fluctuations. Haramaki is incredibly versatile when it comes to layering. You can wear it as a base layer under your clothing to keep warm in colder climates or as a stylish accessory to add a pop of colour or texture to your outfit. Its adaptability means you can easily transition from a chilly morning to a warm afternoon without the need for multiple heavy garments.

3. Comfortable and Cozy:

Packing light doesn't mean sacrificing comfort. The haramaki, made from soft, stretchy materials like cotton or wool, provides a snug and cozy feeling while keeping your core warm. Whether you're exploring a new city or settling in for a cozy evening by the fireplace, you'll appreciate the extra warmth and comfort that a haramaki provides. Say goodbye to those bulky sweaters that can make you feel weighed down and restricted.

4. Stylish and Fashionable:

Don't let the practicality of a haramaki fool you; it's also a stylish addition to your holiday wardrobe. With various colours, patterns, and designs available at NukuNuku, you can easily match it with your outfits, adding flair and personality to your look. Whether you're dressing up for a holiday party or going for a casual stroll in town, our haramaki can complement your style effortlessly.

5. Eco-Friendly Choice:

In today's world, being mindful of our ecological footprint is more important than ever. Packing light means fewer resources are needed for transportation, and the haramaki is an eco-friendly choice due to its minimalistic design. 


When it comes to holiday packing, the haramaki is a game-changer. Its compactness, versatility, comfort, style, and eco-friendliness make it an ideal addition to your travel essentials. By choosing a haramaki, you can lighten your load and make room for what truly matters during the holiday season – unforgettable experiences and cherished memories. So, this year, don't leave home without your trusty haramaki and embark on your holiday adventures with style and ease!
