FUROSHIKI - A wrap for all occasions

Have you heard of furoshiki ?
These traditional Japanese square cloths are getting a lot of attention lately, as a "green" alternative to wrapping paper and plastic shopping bags. Furoshiki is used mostly to wrap gifts and carry almost anything. If you make your furoshiki out of durable fabric like cotton, it will be machine washable and can be used over and over again. Using a furoshiki gift wrapping helps keep paper out of the landfills, making it not only a beautiful and useful craft, but earth-friendly, as well.

You don’t always need the traditional paper and bow. Try something a little different !!
