Gift Wrapping with Textiles

Author(s): Chizuko Morita


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. Using techniques that have been part of Japanese tradition for centuries, Chizuko Morita offers innovative, practical ideas for the Japanese art of wrapping with cloth. In minutes, a piece of cloth can be fashioned into an elegant wrapping for a CD, a book, a bottle of wine, a box of chocolates, even a football. Not only are the wraps fool-proof, they rely on only three basic knots. Beautifully illustrated with full-colour photos, engagingly written and with clear, step-by-step instructions, the book includes sections on cloth selection, tying techniques, wrapping, table settings and much more.
