Ever got curious about how the trend of wrapping gifts began?
Trust us; no one needs to know how the ancient people from China carried ‘Chih Poh’ envelopes on their horses; what matters is how creative you can be when it comes to wrapping a gift.
There are many different ways to please your loved ones with utterly beautiful wrapping techniques.
Are you looking for a unique and quicker way to wrap your gifts?
Try instilling a Japanese touch in your gifts by seeking the art of ‘Furoshiki’. It is a technique and the cloth itself that has been used by people for more than a thousand years to wrap gifts and other items. The beauty of this ancient craft is that it can wrap any item quickly with absolute ease, by anyone. You just need to have a decorated piece of cloth large enough to bundle up the item, complimented by its color combination and design. And with few quick folds, you are good to go. Lastly, ‘Furoshiki’ is ecologically friendly compared to a wrapping paper and you can reuse the fabric many times.
Want to try something with paper? How about a Kimono Style?
It’s not a song or a dancing move like ‘Gangnam Style’, but it sure is an unorthodox way to wrap your precious present. The fascinating thing about this wrapping style is its folds. It has plenty of folds which allow you to place things in – like cards, images and decorative ornaments etc. And if you use flowers, don’t forget to use the net fabric along. It gives a special finish with an extra accent to the whole wrap.
Do you ever look at the gifts and wonder, ‘what’s with that bow’?
Let’s admit, there is something about the big colorful bows and beautiful laces on wrapped boxes that pique our interest. In high context cultures like Japan, China and Pakistan, how we tie our gifts sends a heart-warming message. Similarly, give your gift an elegant look with colorful washi paper. It was used as a sign of peace in the old gift wrapping traditions.
