‘Huroshiki’ or 風呂敷 being an ecological wrapper!

The following quotation is from an article on Daily Telegraph (online version) dated 22 December 2008, reminding the people in the UK to be ecological by not using too much wrapping paper or foil for their Christmas presents.

‘And so the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) is advising people to take on a Japanese tradition by using old pieces of cloth instead.’

The actual article is available from the following site:
