    Oh, you gotta take a look at Furoshiki, the Japanese art of wrapping with fabric. Just Google the term, or get started with the excellent video on this site: http://www.care2.com/greenliving/eco-friendly-wrapping.html

    Hey, thanks for the reminder. We did something on Furoshiki as alt-plastic bag a while back, but didn’t connect what great gift wrapping they would make.
