1. Furoshiki is a traditional, reusable way of presenting gifts. Faith Nagasawa demonstrates how a simple square cloth can be folded into a delightful--and useful--gift wrap for items of all shapes and sizes. Furoshiki wraps with a built-in handle are great for carrying lunch boxes and picnic foods, as well!

    Faith will be wrapping gifts and demonstrating furoshiki live at the Portland Japanese Garden for our Holiday Show and Sale, December 5-24, 2009. http://www.japanesegarden.com/events

The 5.5-acre Japanese garden is composed of five separate garden styles: a Strolling Pond Garden, a Tea Garden, a Natural Garden, a Flat Garden, and a Sand and Stone Garden.
