furoshiki, or fancy wrappin'

There's always a more beautiful way to do everything, and so I thought I'd share a new "thing" I'm into: furoshiki, or the Japanese art of wrapping objects with fabric. I found this image, originally from the website for the Ministry of the Environment on Japan, designed to show folks furoshiki basics. As far as I'm concerned you could do a Master's degree on the philosophy and impact of such a simple design choice....sigh. Aesthetics and practicality wrapped up in one.
