HOW TO: Eco-Friendly Giftwrap

The New Orleans Craft Mafia would love to help you in your quest to go green this holiday season. We hand-make an array of recycled and eco-friendly gifts that would be great for many of the people in your life. In order to reduce the waste so often associated with giving gifts this winter, here is a great idea for eco-friendly gift wrapping (via eco-artware). Take a piece of vintage fabric, such as a silk scarf, a handkerchief, a vintage napkin, or a piece of tablecloth. Place your gift in a reused box, or keep the item as-is, and use this chart of Japanese furoshiki wrapping techniques to enclose your gift in a beautiful, re-used, re-usable way.
