When the dust finally settles and it’s instance to wrap all those great deals you snapped up in the Black Friday frenzy, consider the Japanese art of furoshiki. There are lots of suggestions to use fabric as a wrapping for gifts but, how precisely do you keep the gift in the fabric?
Japan’s Ministry of the Environment made it quite simple to figure out. To energize folks to return to the traditional usage of furoshiki to carry items and reduce the dependence on plastic shopping bags, the Ministry created a handy guide with directions on using furoshiki to holdvarious objects.
If you don’t get ample ideas there, DIY Life has a pretty comprehensive post on the many uses of furoshiki with urls to video demonstrations and additional resources. It might not be a great solution for say, a bicycle, but it would be great for books and other easy to wrap items.
