Furoshiki is the Japanese art of wrapping gifts, and has been around for hundreds, if not thousands of years in the Far East. It’s like ‘origami for fabric’, so you don’t need any packing tape. Just wrap some fabric around a gift and knot into place. You can use this method to wrap books to bottles. The recipient can use the wrap again. Or for families, just stash the wrap in a drawer afterwards, and use for the next birthday or gift-giving occasion.
