furoshiki textiles from The Link Collective

I love a good hostess gift. Whether it’s for a big cocktail party, little get-together or long-weekend at a friend’s, walking in the door with a thoughtful gift sets the perfect tone for the rest of your visit.

When it comes to gifts like these, presentation is everything. My favorite thing to bring is a homemade baked good wrapped in a decorated square of fabric. So when I saw all the beautiful furoshiki (a traditional Japanese style wrapping cloth) from The Link Collective, I knew what all of my hosts and hostesses would be receiving this year.

I’m completely enamored by the concept of furoshiki. These large squares of lightweight fabric can become a scarf, wall hanging or elegantly wrapped present in a matter of moments. Link even has a simple illustrated guide for wrapping Japanese furoshiki.

Their designers are from all over the world, and have created some seriously stunning designs. These individually hand printed textiles are works of art. As if there’s not enough way to use your furoshiki, now you can easily hang it in your home with the hinoki furoshiki display pole. The cypress pole hanging system doesn’t damage the furoshiki and offers a minimal design aesthetic that fits with any style.

My favorite way for wrapping things up has to be for the classic hostess gift, a bottle of wine. It’s elegant, secure, and packs two gifts into one.
