So, among many other things Japanese, I have gotten enamored with furoshiki, wrapping cloths, over the past few years.  I made some last year for gift giving, and made some more this year.  This was one I made for a gift swap at a study group I belong to:

The furoshiki itself is simply a piece of linen I had (and was leftover from making the gifts inside), quickly hemmed on all sides.  I used the four tie wrap (http://furoshiki.com/techniques.php), because I like how the ties at the top look like a bow.  I also made the tag from paper and cardstock I had on hand. It was not difficult, but I think it turned out elegant, and am very happy with the outcome (so was the recipient!).

The gifts inside sitting on top of the furoshiki, opened:

Yay for matching accesories. And this is the ultimate reusable gift wrap.

I am up for a personal swap!

I had never heard of a furoshiki before, but love the idea!    I like way it looks like a bow tie at the top too and being that it is a Japanese it brings an international flavor and conversation piece for a gift exchange.

Thanks for sharing it with all of us!

Ooo! I love furoshikis and this one is soooo stylish! What are the presents inside?

Thanks !  The gifts are a jar of French Vanilla cocoa mix, a cup cozy, a filled tea wallet, and two little pocket warmers (mini rice bags).

The colour of the tag along with the fabric is very pretty!
