Furoshiki – Japanese Art of Cloth Gift Wrapping

The Ministry of the Environment Government of Japan has a guide (PDF) on using cloth as opposed to paper for wrapping gifts to cut down on the wasted paper usually used in gift wrap. This is also a great way to use up fabric scraps. Even if you don’t have enough to wrap one gift, you can sew patchwork pieces together.
