I had a lovely time looking through some books belonging to a friend who trained as a textile designer. She told me that countries such as Japan and Korea have a long tradition of using highly decorated ‘wrapping cloths’ to wrap gifts. This is a link to one at the V & A
This book contains stunningly colourful textiles, a mixture of robes and wrapping cloths, its beautiful! You can get it on Amazon, but its about £70 second hand!
