Green Wrapping Paper: Furoshiki

I am turning over a new leaf. That green leaf is called furoshiki. The Ministry of the Environment from the Government of Japan has made available instructions for multiple forms of furoshiki, which is the wrapping of gifts in cloth. This eco-friendly presentation of presents not only staves off the waste incurred from traditional wrapping paper but also gifts the recipient beautiful fabric which they can reuse to furoshiki a gift to someone else. How fantastic!
