It is December the 14th, which is officially 10 days until Christmas!!!
Now having made it to no further than two blocks this morning because the streets were so crowded with people shopping in preparation for Christmas, I thought now would be a great time to share the art of Furoshiki. This is a Japanese art form where you wrap presents in one piece of cloth, creating interesting and creative presents. I actually stumbled upon this style of wrapping last week, as I have lots of fabric at home and am keen to wrap presents in a more environment friendly way. Why do we love this? Because not only do you get to re-use fabric, scarves, or shawls that you may have at home, but you also get to be a little creative and fun, which this festive season is all about. You can be sure to identify a present that has been wrapped using the Furoshiki technique under the tree (it’s the fun and interesting one).
