Furoshiki

Furoshiki might be the answer if you're getting weary of what seems like an unsustainable number of reusable tote bags (check back later today for a survey on that topic). The video above shows how to use a simple square piece of cloth to wrap two wine bottles. You end up with a functional tote.

We also found a beautiful diagram of the many ways you can use furoshiki to wrap bottles, boxes, books, and even watermelon.

We found this image, originally in PDF format, at the website of the Ministry of the Environment of the government of Japan. (There's a GIF version at Flickr.) We're thinking the diagram has decor potential as well. Some enterprising soul: print the above diagram on a square piece of cloth! Make a mint!
