Furoshiki Style

Furoshiki Gift Wrapping
{Who needs wrapping paper!?}

For a good while now I've been wanting to switch over completely to the ancient Japanese art of wrapping things, such as gifts, which is known as Furoshiki. Instead of paper which usually gets torn and tossed, this technique uses fabric and intricate folds and knotting to wrap things up. Once unwrapped you can use it over and over again or for something else altogether. Think napkins or... I want to experiment with vintage scarves for two gifts in one.
