About the Author
Patricia Lee learned about the use of bojagi, or wrapping scarves, while on a visit to Korea. Years later, Patricia learned that Americans throw away four million tons of wrapping paper and shopping bags each Christmas. Convinced it was time to act and remembering bojagi, she started the Bobo Wrapping Scarf Company.

Tip: take the longest side of your gift and multiply by 3, the total inches is what you use to cut a piece or 2 of fabric into a perfect square. Then sew the fabric pieces together or if you are only using one piece of fabric then sew the edges nicely. That is how you make a fabric wrap. Silks are fancier and softer. Cottons are stiffer and thicker for a different look. I highly recommend this book. Save the environment! Stop using giftwrapping paper!
Reading this was like finding out your favorite dessert was actually good for you-- nutritious, not fattening and eco-friendly. Okay, maybe not the last one. But, unlike so many other things in life, these wrapping scarves seem to really deliver-- green, lovely and really useful. And not to knock canvas bags but how many people use them outside of the grocery store? These scarves (converted to bags) are actually cute enough to carry around all the time.
This book grabbed my attention with the first sentence. It's no surprise that holiday festivities generate extra bags of garbage (for everyone, every year). But what threw me was: first the volume (5 tons) then second the content (4 tons of it gift wrap and bags). Ouch. I walked around with a slight pit in my stomach for weeks. How could such a happy time come at such a steep cost? I wanted my holiday warm fuzzies back. So a good starting point for me was sharing this book with a friend and stocking up on scarves. More tinsel and a pass on the guilt this year.
And that was only in the introduction. The history of the wrapping scarf was also pretty interesting and the demonstrations were really easy to follow.
