WRAP YOUR GIFTS IN RECYCLABLE FUROSHIKI

The furoshiki is a gift in itself...

How refreshing! (The first combined my two favorites: books and fabric!) I must remember this idea; am so happy you shared it here. Thanks.

Thanks, Alice; that does look like a great bookbag... I'm gonna get some new furoshiki!

Oh why didnt I see this before I came to Kyoto in November?! All those lovely pieces of material that I realised eventually were furoshiki, but not any instructions for the prospective tourist buyer!!

I saw some chocolates being given to a Japanese acquaintance, but it didnt seem the time to ask for a demonstration!!

I shall practice for years, and become proficient in the wrist flick when tying the knots for the bag :o)c

I wished I had bought a couple of furoshiki when in Japan in April/May now that I know what they are for. Thanks for the free lesson.
