Biota - Wrapping "Green"

In honour of fellow blogger, Jennifer, of Earth Friendly Weddings (thanks again!) I've decided to post something "green".

Furoshiki is a traditional type of Japanese wrapping cloth that were frequently used to transport clothes, gifts, or other goods. The ancient artform developed from public bath houses where the patrons would bundle their clothes into neat little packages. Eventually, the furoshiki's usage extended to serve as a means for merchants to transport their wares or to protect and decorate a gift. Learn more wrapping techniques at Furoshiki.com.

What a wonderful way to package a present to one you love, not only do they receive the gift inside but also the beautiful fabric, wrap, sari, pashmina, scarf you can choose to wrap it in. Think Christmas, birthdays, Mother's day and for your bridesmaids!

The following are examples from the Biota Collection to be found at a company called Posch, located in Montreal.

The possibilities are endless.

What a great post! I would love to receive a gift in one of these! They remind me of the beautiful silk scarves my friend's mom owned and which we would play dress up in as children. Beautiful!
