Furoshiki ("bath spread") are a multi-use wonder. These traditional Japanese square cloths are a great way to bundle or wrap pretty much anything—gifts, food, babies—but their uses extend even beyond that. Here are 6 different ways you can use one cloth:
1 Wrap a gift:
2 Bundle a wine bottle or picnic lunch.
3 Tie a scarf around your neck.
4 Turn it into a daytime carry-all bag.
5 Use it as a tablecloth.
6 Hang it on your wall.
