Tutorial: Furoshiki Techniques

One of my fondest memories of Japan was watching our Saleswoman wrap our packages when we bought gifts to take home.
She was so talented! She didn't even need tape! It was like taking a master class in origami.
The nice people at Spoonflower have a lesson in wrapping with cloth here, just in time for the holiday season.
  Wrapping a bottle of wine or fancy olive oil with this technique would make your gift even more special. There are so many cute quilting fabrics with unique designs, so you could truly customize even the wrapping to the recipient. I can hardly wait to try it.

I loved that also when I was in Tokyo. Even the most prosaic purchase was wrapped carefully, and the salesperson bowed. I love that culture!
