The Art of Fabric Gift Wraps

By Jennifer Playford,
founder of Furochic™
Photographs by David Hughes/Hotfoot Studio
Illustrations by Nancy Leonard

7 x 8, 128 pages, 4C, paperback with flaps

Wrapagami is an ingenious and beautiful method of wrapping gifts in fabric that anyone can do. Traditional paper gift wrap is not at all earth-friendly. Wrapagami is a gorgeous, green alternative, requiring nothing more than a square of fabric. Wrapagami derives from an ancient Japanese tradition called tsutsumi, and can be applied to objects of any shape or size. These simple wraps make for a unique and lovely way to present gifts, with the truly thoughtful bonus of being re-usable by the giftee.

Award-winning designer Jennifer Playford presents more than 20 wraps, each one explained with clear instructions accompanied by easy-to-follow diagrams, with a lovely color photograph showing the finished product.

Jennifer Playford is an illustrator, the creator of online retailer Jenny Wren Paperie, and the inventor of the award-winning Furochic™ line of wraps (a finalist of the Best New Product Awards at the National Stationery Show in May 2007). Jennifer lives by the beach in Victoria, BC, with her husband and two children.
