back to being eco and inventive – another gift that yuki bought me last xmas all beautifully wrapped with a silk scarf ; furoshiki is what they call it, and I didnt know much about it, though i did photograph something similar for jane brockets stitching book.
once I watched the you tube, i was fascinated – how delightful to be able to pay for something in a shop, take out your scarf and make a bag to take your purchase home in! its eco, green and makes you look super talented – better get practising. in the meantime, you can give any square piece of fabric, but I did notice in brixton village there was a great african shop – african queen selling batique materials.
also makes a lovely alternative way for wrapping a present! and if you are really green you could take it shopping with you and then wrap up your purchases with your scarf.
