Miss Haberdash has Christmas wrapped up ....

Furoshiki is the Japanese art of wrapping, using cloth. If you have plenty of fabric to spare then this a great eco-alternative to Christmas gift wrap and much more fun.

Friends and family will be wowed by your creativity, and for a personal touch this is pretty special.

I was very impressed with Link a collective of artists and designers working to preserve this craft and bringing it bang up to date (see images above).
