Gift Wrapping with Textiles: Stylish Ideas from Japan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Japanese culture, it is customary to put as much care into the wrapping of a gift as into choosing the gift itself. The way a gift is wrapped and the material in which it is presented are considered expressions of the giver's feeling toward the recipient. Now, using techniques that have been part of Japanese tradition for generations, Chizuko Morita offers readers innovative and unique ideas for using the Japanese art of wrapping with cloth in very contemporary ways. In a matter of minutes, a swatch of cloth known as a furoshiki can be fashioned into an elegant wrapping for a CD, a book, a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates, even a soccer ball. And unlike paper gift wrap, if you get it wrong the first time, you can just undo the knots and start again.

Not only are the wraps fool-proof, they rely on only three basic knots.

INCLUDES:

* Stunningly original wrapping ideas

* Gift-wraps for wine, books, CDs, pictures, posters, balls, and boxed items of all sizes
